This artwork responds to and reflects the incredible natural landscape in and around Flinders, whilst activating the space in a dynamic and energising way. The artwork seeks to place into stark relief, the elements of earth and water, coast and landscape; sun, flora and fauna.
The motifs that are woven through the landscape, reference a number of things; they reference the Connection to Country and landscape that we as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have. It symbolises the custodianship and responsibility that we feel to the habitat of our flora and fauna and our relationships with the landscape. This artwork speaks to the concept of journey - of walking in two worlds to become leaders within community. This coupled with the signage of Aboriginal Language Groups and/or Welcome to Country will truly be underpinned by our Connection to place and space and how this is enmeshed within our personhood. It seeks to bring a sense of the landscape into the space; to inspire, inform and delight. It also seeks to tell the narrative of many students coming to Kaurna Yerta from all across Australia to walk together and learn together.
