A work by Perdita Phillips features a booklet of photographs of the timber town of Pemberton with locations pictured in the past and re-photographed by Phillips in the present. Above this is a mixed media image of the giant karri log once displayed in Kings Park with onlookers dwarfed by its scale. With these juxtapositions, Phillips asks us to consider the passing of time and the contradiction of the celebration of the natural world in the face of its destruction.
