Lloyd Godman plant works

"Lloyd Godman is one of a new breed of environmental artists whose work is directly influencing 'green' building design......"Godman's installations are the result of a unique blend of botanical science, environmental awareness and artistic expression. All three elements are intrinsic to the practical realisation of his polymathic vision".

Born in Dunedin, New Zealand in1952, and now living in Melbourne, Australia, he has been exploring environmental issues through photography (in combination with sculpture, painting and installations) since the early1980s"

  • With the suspended air plant sculptures like those installed for the Airborne project, we are interested in exploring how plants can occupy space but not surface. Suspension on and via wires extends the potential habitat of plants into what I term Alpha Space. While vertical and roof top gardens have become popular in major cities worldwide, they occupy surface, but these intriguing ground breaking air gardens step beyond earthly confines to rotate suspended in air or Alpha space
  • For many decades, my work had been termed environmental art. But more recently this term has been claimed by artists who create virtual environments. Ecology is the branch of biology dealing with the relations and interactions between organisms and their environment, including other organisms. I experiment using air plants within both ecology and an art context.
  • The 22 March, 2015, online edition of The AGE newspaper, termed the experiments on Eureka tower as “Extreme Gardening”. It was such a great concept for what we are doing with the Tillandsias within the urban environment, we decided to adopt it.
