A terrarium by artist Wawi Navarroza graced the cover of international art magazine Pipeline this month. The terrarium is part of a larger collaborative art project, wherein Wawi invited people to collect terrarium materials from in and around Manila. Wawi compiled the disparate results into elegant yet ephemeral terrarium arrangements that highlight the transitory nature of the scavenged plants and materials. Randz Manucom of Preen reports:
Hunt & Gather, Terraria is a collaboration where Metro Manila urban dwellers were invited by Wawi to search for soil, plants, and ephemera from meaningful locations in the city. These are then arranged inside glass terrariums by Wawi herself and photographed as still-lifes.
