At 4pm yesterday I finished off the planting up of the Bluebells installation. The neighbour’s cat strolled over and carefully picked her way across the bed. No doubt she will be adding her own contributions to the piece as the month goes on. But this is the beauty of work in the public domain. Anything or nothing might happen to it and that is a fundamental part of the process of creating such a piece.
I am also interested to see/hear how people view this piece. In this familiar context the piece looks far more like a garden, we provide our own answers to the challenge of ‘what is it?’ based on our experience and expectations of the front garden patio location. It was an intentionally different matter in the gallery last year. I am happy for this contrast.
