Composting
Artist Residency
Siteworks
Saxon Street, Brunswick
Februrary - November 2021

Composting is a 9 month artist residency project hosted at Siteworks in Brunswick in 2021. A worm farm compost system has been built in the Siteworks garden. Kitchen waste is ingested by worms and decomposes to form a rich humus. Simultaneously, an evolving collective of ‘digital compost’ is accumulated using a 3D digital rendering program. This is formed of mounds of slippery pixels that disintergrate and bear strange offshoots.

The residency seeks to investigate the cross-pollination of matter from these two compost systems as they feed into eachother via processes including 3D scanning and printing. It forms a process-based investigation of the extension of closed-loop systems in permaculture design from physical to digital platforms.
