kept , 2018 is an artwork that reflects on what does it means to create beauty or local order without considering its environmental consequences. Like ornamental plants such as Cardiospermum grandiflorum vine that had been introduced in Australia during the colonial era to decorate gardens while disregarding its invasive nature of overtaking the native habitat. By gathering, collecting, assembling and sewing Cardiospermum grandiflorum seeds and seed pods into recycled aesthetic growing shapes, Ferracin wants to mark the importance of past and future human behaviours while creating environmental awareness.
