Decomposed/Composed

Sacred Garden

Decomposed/Composed was a journey to explore the birth and death of nature. The chia seeds represent the cycle of life that we experience in our lives.  Andrea  Wellnitz planted chia seeds on burlap and over time the seeds would grow and then were left to wither and dry up.  Exploring the configurations of the growing burlap and changed over time as did the plant material.

The Sacred Garden was designed to create space visitors could immerse themselves in.  They could enter the "Venus" pod and write a note to add to the clothes line suspended in the space, or use the space to relax and focus their mind.  The felted fiber work encompassed fall and spring/summer.
