In 2006 Nimki had a second solo show at The Approach . As part of the show he transplanted weeds he had grown from seeds using artificial lighting and a Hydrophonics system.

Another interesting project that Nimki has created can be found at this site called Untold . He uses an interface on his palm pilot to collect much of his data for his artwork. On this site visitors are allowed to interact with his data by printing out sketches of plants and emailing them to friends. As the site says... "Each time a sketch is printed it turns up on a different place on the page mimicking the way weeds appear.
I first came across Nimki's work while reading Art of the Garden which was a publication based on a major show at the Tate that looked at the work of British artists over several centuries whose work focused on gardens. His focus on weeds and wildflowers brought me back to Ruskin's direction to paint what grows naturally, not what is tended by humans. The intricate nature of Nimki's work produces a world that the viewer can become lost in. The beauty of the overlooked and unconsidered cannot be ignored.
