mushrooms cultivated in the books….

“By introducing the book as a material in the garden, Jardin de la Connaissance offers an evocative cultural frame to examine transformational processes inherent in nature. Invoking the mythic relation between knowledge and nature, integral to the concept of ‘paradise’, we invite the emotional involvement of the visitor by exposing these fragile and supposedly timeless cultural artefacts to the processes of decomposition. ” More.

    My friend has suggested that his cat (a manx stumpy) be introduced to this garden, but he is not entirely sure what transformational, mythic, cultural processes she might evoke. . .

    I like the idea but I really hate when people tell me, the viewer, what I am supposed to take away from their art.
