habitat, 2018 is a collaborative work that incorporate Ferracin multisensory sculptural strategy within a context of an intimate environmental encounter with a noxious vine called Cardiospermum grandiflorum (balloon vine). This staged habitat creates environmental awareness by showing the noxious weed overtaking native Casuarina trees and alluding to chemical components' disruption of soil and waters with the presence of Lisa Tolcher’s rusted mild metals. Ferracin environmental intervention has been to collect and separate Cardiospermum seeds, stems and seedpods that she filmed during the yearly seasons and install within the gallery.
