In solidarity with Breonna Taylor’s family, BREONNA’S GARDEN is a revolutionary framework for veneration through augmented reality (AR). As a sacred space, the Garden is brimming with flowers, butterflies, and a few of Breonna’s favorite things. The development of the project started after Lady PheOnix connected with Ju’Niyah Palmer, Breonna’s sister. Initially, Lady PheOnix sensed a need for a safe space online where her family and friends could mourn. It soon became apparent that entire communities needed a place to process their grief. “We created BREONNA’S GARDEN to honor the life of Breonna Taylor with the intention that it be a peaceful refuge, unencumbered by the weight of the world.”
