Mount Jerome by Valerija Kazackova

This project began to develop while we were questioning the entire tradition surrounding funerals. Our principal focus lied in determining a more sustainable and meaningful way of farewell and commemoration. On the other hand we recognized a critical importance of Mount Jerome amongst the residence of Harolds Cross from the perspective of environmental well-being.  In this project we propose a new practice of “Ash scattering”. Cremains would be planted into a pot with a specialized soil mix that neutralizes acidic particles within the ashes.  After choosing the type of tree follows a  memorial ceremony of plantation. As a result our loved ones take another form of life that we can all enjoy while it grows and flourishes.
