Edge

2015, ‘The Edge’. Gobabeb, Namib Desert, Namibia. Land Art Piece. This work speaks about how boundaries and or edges can be seen in a positive light as well. When things/places/people meet something new is created by their interaction and this new creativity is what drives us. I built a wall with old pallets, wood, soil, manure and hessian with a sprinkling system inside for the plants. Both sides of the wall were planted…one with indigenous plants from the area and one with herbs and vegetables that one can find in most gardens around the world. The idea is for the plants to grow and spread…or not…on their own. The food produced can be used by the local community. Nature will take over and create something new and hopefully transform the border/boundary into a fertile space for plants to thrive.
