This artwork was generated in response to the Roe8/Perth Freight Link highway extension which, if successful, will slice through the Beeliar Wetlands. The artist collaborated with Nandi Chinna, Sharyn Egan, Annette Nykiel, Perdita Phillips, Nien Schwarz and Holly Story in a variety of responses to this local urban wetlands issue for the exhibition Direct Address. The artwork plays against the orthodox understanding of the abbreviation TRG. These small sculptures invite the viewer to physically engage with the material nature of the wetlands through their palms and fingers.
