Julie Ryder
Australia

Artist in residence October 2004 – March 2005
Julie is working closely with the scientists at the CPBR on the little understood world of cryptogams-spore-bearing plants without flowers or seeds, which include the mosses, hornworts, liverworts and ferns. With a background in textile design, Julie is increasingly working with new media technologies to enable the development of new techniques and designs. With access to electron microscopy, the residency will explore the visualisation and display of small-scale objects and applying web-based technology to exchange visual information about these fascinating organisms and their role in modern ecology.

FRUIT takes up the challenge of elevating the ecological knowledge of consumers and encouraging a way of life that is friendly to the environment. We want consumers to be conscious of the entire life of a product, from production to utilization, and not just what they see in the stores. Consumers must be aware that every phase of a product's life influences the environment and ourselves.

Free Soil has produced a run of FRUIT wrappers, a website, and a traveling installation as part of an initiative to inform people about alternative food systems and local food movements. The wrappers are disseminated throughout the food chain by piggybacking on oranges. Information will be carried through the food system and into the hands of consumers. The wrapper holds information on a variety of aspects concerning food movements, transport and urban farming. Get your daily dose!
