Stony Creek Reserve is located within a highly industrial precinct of Port Melbourne. The land is contaminated by industrial waste products and as part of an open day, 10 Artist were invited to created artworks that made comment on this land, its history and location. This activated awareness where people interacted with the site. This installation is about nurturing and healing. By creating a space to BE in or go to, to heal our humanity, we can inevitably have greater awareness of our intensions and actions. I wanted to use materials that would also physically help replenish and revegetate the site. By using hay as my medium the Friends of Stoney Creek group could use it as mulch once the exhibition had concluded.
