wool, soil, pete moss, crocus bulbs
This page maps out the locations and tracks the progress of my "seed bombs." These felt creations, made to resemble rocks, contain pete moss and crocus bulbs, which usually bloom in late winter or early spring.
This work represents a transformation and renewal process for me, as over the course of time the work and it's environment will undergo many changes, which I document with this map. The inert, lifeless "rocks" will disintegrate and the crocuses will bloom through the snow covered ground (hopefully). These works also represent a relinquishment of control. Although I plan to document their progress, once I have placed them in their locations I do not plan to interfere will their fate. They could not bloom at all. They could be eaten by animals. Or stolen.
I will continue to update this map with images of these works as they change over the course of this winter, and after.
UPDATE: So, none of the flowers in these "seed bombs" actually grew, but many of them did get moved around and weathered by the elements and possibly birds and squirrels. I'm going to attempt another variation on this idea in the coming Spring.
