It’s time to start working on my Winton Wetlands site specific art project.
Winton Wetlands is just a few kilometres from my home in North East Victoria and I have been having a relationship with the wetlands since 2016.
The Winton Wetlands is in a restoration stage and focusses on the environmental, social, spiritual and cultural significance of the site. It has had a long diverse history and more information can be found here.
From camping overnight to frequent visits to the many special sites of the wetlands I have been able to gain an understanding of the importance of this ephemeral site. I have seen the wetlands in drought and in flood. I have witnessed a beautiful swan egg sitting proudly on a nest whilst kayaking. I have also run away from tiger snakes and experienced the loud wailing calls of hundreds of cockatoos as I approached their flock.
Now to create.....
