Green houses.... will be installed as part of the 2012 Ipswich Festival. The temporary installation will occur on the 28th April at Queens Park as part of the Jazz Festival program.
Green houses.... is an ephemeral installation which explores our relationship with the natural world: reflecting on our sense of 'home' in an ecological context.
The work, constructed from ice, reflects the vulnerability of our 'home' to climatic conditions, evoking contemplation in relation to our symbiotic connection with our environmental 'home': Planet Earth.
