In April we (the Broadstrokes) in collaboration with Tricia Smout as part of her artist in residency program at the Mt Coo-tha Gardens embarked on our bundle project. We each assembled three bundles, one bundle hung in the Mt Coo-tha Gardens, one bundle hung at home and the third bundle was buried in our home gardens. My bundle at home hung on the side fence, it's quite an exposed section of the garden.
The below bundle hung in the Mt Coo-tha Gardens and in a more sheltered area so the changes were slight

The buried bundle was the one with the most dramatic change. Even the worms had started to move in.
We have chickens so our garden does get quite a bit of organic matter.
Using the bits n pieces from our bundles we will now each make an A3 size signature for a collaborative book and an individual item/book. They will be on display in November as part of Tricia's end of residency exhibition. Tricia currently has an international call for participation in an Air-Mail Envelope Project and a Focus on Nature Project - full details on how to participate are here
