Here is a beautiful film clip made by the amazingly talented Peter Corbett of my art installation 'Bare Bones of the Cobboboonee'.
This work had its genesis in an investigation into the inner life of a local native forest, the Cobboboonee. Mimicking the style of many a naturalist before me, I collected specimens from that forest. I felt rather like a surgeon, or a miner, as I cut back the bark to uncover the richness of the bare branches - the bones of the trees - beneath.
Each species has its own colour and form, density and distinguishing characteristics.
All fill me with wonder and give me a new appreciation of the forest in which they grew.
