Hidden Nature Things

A sculpture project by City of Kwinana X Tim Meakins

Hidden Nature Things is a project for people of all ages to embark on an exploration of their local community to find figures of a new, strange ecosystem. Large Bushes, Worms and Body Building Ants will reveal themselves in your local park and showcase what our eyes don’t usually see.

The site of this sculpture project is Bullrush Park in Wellard and will be on display permanently.

Tim Meakins 

A picture of artist Tim Meakins

  Working across sculpture, painting, print, animation and publishing, he employs

  systems and cartoons to create intensely energetic propositions around the ever mutating
  forms, limits, plasticity, optical register and possibilities of digital and analogue states-of-being.
