Site-Specific Participatory Public Sculpture
Growing Giants is a sculptural intervention that celebrates the natural fauna and flora of the Isle of Axeholme. Large sculptural flowers infiltrate the landscape, incorporated within them seed holders, bird perches and water reservoirs for bird and bee baths. As the wind and wildlife interact with the sculptures, endemic wildflower seeds will be scattered from the seed-holders, providing food and shelter for the local wildlife.
Central to this installation is the provocation that the flora and fauna of an area should be beneficiaries of any interaction on a natural landscape. Local communities are encouraged to take a lead role in nurturing their local natural landscape through filling the seed holders and water reservoirs.
