Island charts an ongoing endeavour to creatively
respond to the experience of place, in this case,
Wadjemup, or Rottnest Island. The visual and the
tactile reflect two primary means of encountering a
landscape. Our sense of scale can reduce or enlarge,
as we are drawn into fascination for the minutiae of
life forms found. Wadjemup as an island acts as a
refugium, a place where species may flourish and
be protected. The boxes reflect the duality of
containment and vulnerability inherent in this
particular island.
