The ephemeral sculpture Propagate was created at the Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens (RTBG). It uses fallen oak leaves to poetically manifest interrelationships within an ecosystem.
Concentric circles radiate outwards from the trunks of 16 oak trees to cover an area of approximately 2000 m2. Over a period of several weeks the sculpture was gradually erased by the wind, rain and fauna. By being reabsorbed into the site to remain part of the biota within the RTBG, Propagate emphasises how outputs from one process in nature become the inputs for another.
