RHS Chelsea Show Garden 2007

‘Lust For Life’ : Silver medal

Inspired by the Iggy Pop song ‘Lust For Life’ this show garden takes the life- affirming musical pulse of the punk song and reinterprets it though a pulsing arc of water, programmed to the introduction’s rhythm. Three ascending spheres planted with 1,500 white dianthus, echo the ‘dream bubbles’ of the ‘BFG’ in the Roald Dahl’s children’s story. The narrative, with a Gleditsia tree emerging from the 3rd sphere, is of realisation of childhood dreams.
