|In collaboration with 8 human participants and 22 waterbodies|
The work of the participants in this social practice project was to convey ‘messages’ of goodwill between wetlands so that a conceptual network of connections could be drawn. Even though many of the waterbodies were highly modified (and many were reconstructed wetlands), they still deserved to be valued biologically and culturally. The shores of the Swan have been greatly changed and many of the wetlands that once existed through Northbridge are no more. This project conceptually linked these isolated places once again.
