Different Ways of Being
A temporary commission for the opening day strongly supported the dialogue between outside and inside and between place and space creating a physical environment of leisure. Three sensory elements form the basis of this work:
OLFACTORY: has been created from the inspiration from this quote from Mark Twain;
“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heal that has crushed it.”
Dried lavender and chamomile was laid on the paths that intersect ‘Afforest’ and ‘The Green Room’ and as people walk through these works they will inadvertently release the smells of the colours they are surrounded by and the reinvestment of site.
TOUCH: purple parasols were handed out on the day and as people wander and swirl these they will create purple moving flowers moving through the park. People can also take their positions under the purple flowering petals of randomly placed umbrellas for protection from the elements and the creation of smaller intimate zones within a public area. These umbrellas symbolise and make reference to our beach culture.
