Radicle - part of Dialogues with Landscape

The paraphernalia of a rootless existence, such as sleeping bags and tents, are rolled to form soft-sculptural planters. These incubating seedbeds support the growth of 100 plants native to Western Australia. Each vessel is fitted with a tag identifying the scientific and common name. Another tag references a UWA-related research publication title drawn from any faculty and collectively forming a temporary nursery and library annex that reflects a rapidly changing environment and associated fields of knowledge. Radicle is also designed to complement UWA’s centenary and its heritage-listed gardens. The UWA School of Plant Biology helped support the development of the project.
