Today I decided to experiment with bubblewrap. There has been a huge roll of it in the studio since I started the residency. I want to make work that will use the wall space too but the peat and paper isn’t really working out.  I tries a small square of bubble wrap and filled each bubble with peat. This is a really slow process and it took me the whole afternoon to complete it. It looks like a beehive structure. I am thinking of growing some seeds in each bubble too.

 

 

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.
