From little things . . .

I'm thrilled to be the 2018 artist-in-residence with the Botanic Gardens of South Australia for The Collections Project (a collaborative project between Guildhouse and the Botanic Gardens).

I have long been intrigued by the Garden of Health at the Adelaide Botanic Garden as a resource for contemplation and healing, and I have created a new body of sound and installation works informed by the memories and knowledge held within hundreds of thousands of years of plant medicine. The works respond directly to the site's history and its living collection and extends my current interest in the nature of memory, and the memories of nature.

Exhibition dates

18 June - 29 July

Santos Museum of Economic Botany
Adelaide Botanic Garden
North Terrace, Adelaide

Live soundscapes in the Garden

Saturdays in July from 1–3pm

Every Saturday in July you can join me to experience live soundscapes in the Adelaide Botanic Garden. I will be using a musical instrument digital interface to translate the electromagnetic energy of trees into sound.

Please see staff at the Santos Museum of Economic Botany for information and directions on the day.
