crumbling ecologies.

Wednesday 29 February 2012

Over the weekend I helped hand cast geranium leaf sculptures for Jasmine Targett's installation "Crumbling Ecologies." With the help of volunteers, Jasmine will be producing approximately 35,000 hand cast leaves. The installation will be exhibited at Craft Victoria from April 27th until June 9th, 2012.

The installation discusses the art community as an ecology which is currently under threat. With the  closure of studio facilities across many art schools, art practices are under serious threat. To read about the project in Jasmine's words, visit the Crumbling Ecologies website.

I really enjoyed contributing to this community produced art piece. Apart from the sheer pleasure of making these delicate little sculptures, the creative energy of the group, coming from such a diverse range of backgrounds, left me quite inspired. Jasmine is still looking for more volunteers so if you can lend a hand, please email her at
