This forms is in the window so that people can see the grass seeds grow over the course of this residency. I raked the sand first , very Japanese. Sand is used in Japanese gardens to represent water so it is raked to resemble the waves. The peat balls were rolled in grass seeds so hopefully they will grow!!!
Over the course of this residency the forms on the ground have often been walked on. People expect work to be displayed on the walls and not on the ground. I had just finished making this piece and it was walked on. This seems to be part of making work on the ground. I read that Andy Goldsworthy had just finished a piece using leaves and a dog ran right through it.
I have always loved Andy Goldsworthy’s work. The forms he creates are circles, spheres and holes. He uses materials from the envionment. I enjoy looking at his work and this gives me some inspiration for my own work.
I decided to continue on with the peat forms. I like repetition of form so I decided to make the peat balls and arrange them in rows. There is something calming about looking at rows of objects.
