The Gates is a series of 6 arbor gates that line a walkway at a spiritual retreat center in the Ojai Valley.  In the most trafficked corridor of the land, the gates provide much needed shade, as well as a sensual experience of successive initiation into the deeper regions of the land.  They alternate from purple wisteria to star jasmine, two highly aromatic climbing vines, to create an walking aromatherphy installation, and to fully immerse humans in the world of plants.
