The project was installed at Gaffa which is centrally located in the CBD, a great alternative venue offering a creative outlet and meeting spot which was easy to access by public transport.
I felt like i dropped in from an alternate universe and it took me a while to orientate myself beyond the key features of the train station and the gallery, so the two walks I had planned were an excellent way to branch out and explore the city street scape.
Luckily the weather was fine and after consulting with Danielle, Clare and Jane we headed off in the general direction of China town.
It soon became apparent that the street sweepers had recently passed through and plastic fragments were proving hard to find than expected.
We headed down smelly back allies but still pickings were rare.
When we set up a work space in China town we soon realised why as we observed roving street cleaners sweeping up foot paths with pan and brooms.
After everybody had got to grip with the seeding process we headed over to Darling Gardens, along the way we found promising results in planter boxes and gardent beds.
We adapted some seating in Darling Gardens, every one worked happily away under the shade, lots of discussion and sharing of perspectives which is something i always enjoy.
The following day i met Felix and Michelle outside Gaffa and based on the previous days experience was decided to head over to Pyrmont.
No plastic is a good sign, but it makes the collecting aspect of the walk take much longer and shortens the making time.
After walking around the block I was still surprised how little we were finding, Pyrmont was cleaner than Ponsonby!
It wasn't too busy with cars, some occasional foot traffic a perfect site for seeding and some more in depth philosophical conversation.
Thanks to all who came along to the exhibition and on the walks, please feel free to explore the process in your own way and I would really love to hear of what you did or how you went about it.
