2010, crushed limestone, site-specific installation, Kelly's Garden Curated Projects, Salamanca Arts Centre, Hobart, Tasmania. Video documentation, 2560 x 1600 (4K), 12 minutes, with sound.

Three tonnes of white crushed limestone is introduced into the walled garden already laid with 'Tassie Gold' crushed limestone. The carpet of stones seems to fold back on itself to reveal its underside and the earth beneath, so activating the entire garden. The garden has a stairwell in the corner that enables views from above.
