This is the garden I spent one year practicing out of in the place of an artist studio within the University of Melbourne. The resulting artwork from this project was the early summer garden and a live video stream of it. This depicts a whole day of activity in the garden; documenting actions of care and labour to sustain the garden-whole.

This project continued on from three years of accepting un-wanted by-products from other creative practices and incorporating these materials into the garden. To-date the garden has absorbed clay, soil, rock, plants, bricks, paper recycling, sand, wood, cloth and bamboo. To see the subsequent project that resulted from the sale of our rental property please visit: Abbotsford Convent C3
