Relics of the Future is a series of sculptural works suggestive of a department store or museum display case responding to the social enterprise plans of Bridgefoot Street Community Garden for a cottage market. Seeds and plant materials are incorporated in jewellery-esque forms or pressed and reimagined as designs on silk scarves.

Relics of the Future was made with thanks to Richard Taplin, Bridgefoot Street Community Garden, and James Healy Ltd. It was funded by an Arts Council Project Award 2018 and developed during a Dublin City Council Residential Residency supported by Galway City Council.
