Strange Garden is an ongoing body of work, a sculptural installation of a beautiful, fantastical garden made entirely from recycled cardboard.
"Cardboard is dead organic matter. I imagine that it has a cellular memory of being a plant and wants to reform into organic shapes: it remembers being a plant. As packaging, cardboard is symbolic of the excessive consumption that is decastating the natural world. By using this packaging I suggest a reappraisal, reminding us that value isn't inherent in an onject, that rubbish can become valuable, and an ugly material can become beautiful."
- Artist, Eliza-Jane Gilchrist
