dc.description.abstractThis research explores gardening and object-based installation as ‘likeminded’ systems that could be understood as metaphoric of one another in their consideration of colour, texture, and aesthetic arrangements of things in space. Using conversation as a core methodology, the project explores the relational capacity of the garden by developing a series of Conversational Events as an entry point into ways of practising. These interview-like events have been conducted throughout the project with family and friends and gardening enthusiasts. The aim is to investigate how gardens might function as constructed spaces connected to memory, story, and relationship. Conversation is a core method used to cultivate insights, as a means to reflect on the nature of gardening/object-based installation, as comparable modes of making. Haphazard is developed as an active methodology through processes of adaption and trial and error. The research operates with an experimental zone of practice; working with both found and formed materials such as fabric, resin, paint, and glaze, in conjunction with clay to create objects that identify highly-coloured eccentric forms in an attempt to push the threshold of the object’s materiality and associative qualities.en_NZ
