Consecrated, 2011 – 35 x 35x 5cm slim box in clear transparent Perspex or Plexiglas. The box is attached to a mixed media decorated wooden frame. The box acts as a small “terrarium” which holds about one square foot of soil from his own garden. Layers of sand were also added to create some contrast and a type of landscape. The soil, in turn, contains seeds, and small invertebrates such as worms and slugs that with the time will modify, transform and destroy this landscape.
