Interwoven – 2015
‘Interwoven’ is about children as messengers, they remind us of the importance of caring for their future, of connecting to Country, of expressing that which must be deeply communicated urgently as we face the wilful and unprecedented destruction of this wondrous planet.
“Interwoven” is also about a culture, the original care takers of the continent we know as Australia, who have a deep connection to Country, to nature, which is inherent in their language, art and culture.
“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”
