Festival | 2014 Edition

Surface Deep

Revisiting the garden wall, an element that has been a consistent expressive element within the history of gardening, the wall is transformed to form a ribbon surface that constructs new associations, expressions and functions for the entry sequence. Its undulating form is a response and gesture for a new entry sequence which also embeds an experimental moss surface that flips between wall, floor, cover, creating multiple orientations and microclimates for the living material.

Surface Deep constructs a new way to meander, as well as gather at the entry of the gardens, while secretly enveloping a multiply oriented garden, enveloped within its surface depth.
