A friend hit this little Tawny while traveling home at twilight on a dirt road. She felt so terrible that she had hit the little guy but knew of my work - she wrapped him in cloth and traveled to give him to me, so that I could give him his Burial Rites.

The local gardener here had grown a row of flowers for community members to pick for funerals so they didn't have to use plastic flowers for funerals, I had absolutely no idea about that when I decided to use them and was only told about their purpose - feels even more fitting now.

After we had done our work I wrapped him in bark and placed him at the bottom of a big, old gum tree that was reaching up towards the rising moon. Goodbye friend.

So often now in the western world we turn away from death and have so few rites and honoring left in our culture. This series is imbued with the rituals of my ancestors past, of viking burials, of Stone Henge sacrifices of druid offerings and witches brews. An ode to the natural world and to the wild in all of us.

My Decay Projects are focused on the practice of truth telling, to capture life exactly as it is, death, decay and an honest capturing of its motion through the natural world.

Pieces are usually made #AndyGoldswothy style. In situ using only what is available in the immediate environment. Capturing a moment that is uniquely of it's place before letting all it's parts return to atom and dust, a passing moment in the natural world captured in 0's and 1's on the blockchain for all eternity.
