By Andrew J. Padilla

 

Justo Botánica AR project, features a 7 Eleven that has replaced the storefront where the “botánica” once stood. After many years operating in the neighborhood, along with 5 other small businesses on 104th and Lexington Ave., Justo Botánica was given a 30 days notice to vacate. By interacting with this augmented, the artist will share with viewers more information about how the family of the original owner, Justo, is currently working to maintain this business afloat at a different location and in the midst of gentrification.
