WildWords, by artist Anthony Garratt, is a series of collaborative art installations which 'scorch' texts about natural recovery, and our relationship with the natural world into areas of short grass.
The words, committed to the earth, will appear over a couple of days following the 'branding' as the grass dies and alters from green to brown. Over the following weeks; the time it will take for the grass to recover, the poem will transition from brown, back to green, until finally disappearing once recovery is complete.
