Popper Box Paddington

We’re sorry we missed seeing this ephemeral project, but the photos are lovely. Paddington Reservoir Gardens is a heritage-listed site in Sydney, Australia. Once a functioning reservoir, it was restored and reopened in its current form in 2009. In 2012, Popper Box, a collective of local artists, installed a temporary exhibit, Modern Day Mossages, on one wall of the garden.

A line of poetry, “Standing in the warmest light,” was created in living moss, which was affixed to the wall with a mix of soil, beer and yogurt. The artists watered their work over the course of the one-month installation. Visit the Popper Box Paddington Reservoir page and click Process Two (then Next) to see process photos, including stencils and application of the moss. See the completed project at Final.
