Catchment was positioned beside a small pond within an area separating cleared paddocks from natural vegetation. Selecting this location represented the continued use of liminal space to explore nature/culture exchanges while the form and material used for Catchment alluded to the roles played by plant leaves and house roofs in collecting and redistributing water. By carefully arranging Catchment’s components water could be redirected into the pond from beyond its usual catchment area.
