Gorse Gloves

    Research output: Non-textual formPhysical Non-textual work


    Mayos pairs of connected gloves consider the way in which human introduction of plants into a pre-exisiting set of biospheres creates challenges and displacement for the animals and plants already living there. The gloves, dyed with Gorse (an invasive weed collected along the Merri Creek) and printed with imagery of Gorse and Kangaroo Apple, tie the human engagement with the creek inextricably to the creeks health. The human hands, tied by the gloves interconnected fingers, remind us of the ongoing house-keeping of replanting and weeding associated with environmental restoration work.
