Sculpture - Glass, Rainforest Remnants And Newspaper, Stainless Steel Frames, Rubber
The Wilmot River runs into the Forth River which is the last journey for the water to entre the sea.
It is a journey that has a history of the silent death of thousands of Tasmanian Native animals and plants. The Government has been killing native marsupials for more than 60 years with a poison and as well as shooting them, they have mostly died from 1080 poison. The last time I dived into the river to swim I bumped into two wallaby carcasses that had died from this poison. The river washes all the poisons from weed-asides and fertilizers down to the sea. The silent remnants� of the clear fell forest slip down into the water and get carried along. Newspaper with the latest forest debate is fused into the glass so that one day someone might find the ash remnants and identify the time frame the event of loosing our rain forest happened. Like a message in a bottle, I wanted to express my feelings about what has happened and will continue to happen until we all change the way we live.
