Lucky Sod saw local artist Caroline Johnston play with ideas relating to the contrived organisation of nature and how this is manifested in home gardens.
Her floor work installation combined a real tree trunk and root system with more synthetic materials and gardening implements. Lucky Sod's investigation of the uncanny and the suburban day-to-day relationship many New Zealanders have with nature had the feeling of being both menacing and alluring.
