Regrowth, 2018

This work is an installation of ambiguous looking structures that are encroaching on the rainforest. The ceramic bases are “planted” into the forest floor and the structure then organically climbs towards the forest canopy with crocheted and woven recycled plastic bags. Each structure is a representation of an ambiguous living thing that the audience questions as to what (plant, animal etc) the structure represents and also the intention of the structure in relation to the rainforest (friend or foe). On the whole the structure can be interpreted as symbiotic or parasitic depending on the audience’s viewpoint. The contrast of natural and synthetic materials is intentional, as human impact on natural habitat increases adaption to new environments involves increasingly dramatic circumstances.

Ceramic, plastic, jute.
