Take Your Time installation.
During the long and darkened winter months we often crave being able to spend time outside in green garden spaces.
This installation is a secluded space filled with the sound and scent that we often associate with gardens. A space that contrasts with the cold environment outside, this project is designed to be installed during the winter period. Inviting the viewer to walk in, stop, sit and experience the calmness and warmth of a green space.
A series of fabric cones will be installed from the ceiling that will be filled with herbs or flowers to send a subtle scent throughout the space. The cone forms will be suspended from the ceiling by creating a simple webbing structure across the top using a strong fishing line and crimps the entire structure will be virtually weightless and partially invisible to the viewer, creating an illusion of elevation and suspension once the entire piece has been installed. Cones will hang at slightly different heights allowing the visitors to walk in between this will also visually extend the space.
Cones will be made out of pure cotton using plant extracts to dye the fabric creating varying degrees and shades of green. These will be filled with herbs or flowers so as visitors interact with the space there will be a subtle scent filling air.
Sounds from the garden will quietly filtered into the gallery to create an entire sensory experience whilst encountering the space and bring a sense of the garden inside.
