Incredible field of handcrafted poppies now on display...
From War to Remembrance: a living history of the RSL is a free exhibition now on display at the State Library of Western Australia. As part of the exhibition, Albany artists Smash Creation have installed a field of handcrafted poppies within “The Nook” on the Ground Floor of the Library. The artists, Hamish Cameron and Sam Leslie used pages printed with the Oath of Remembrance to make the blades of grass and paper, beads and wire to make the poppies, which move and sway as if they were real. "We didn't realise the journey that we would go on when we started the project," Ms Leslie said. "It ended up being a really emotional one." The exhibition will be on display at the State Library until 30 June.
