In 1998 twenty Singapore-based artists carry out ground breaking visual research for their art practice while camped in Kakadu, northern Australia. This field trip included eminent Singapore artists such as Chua Ek Kay and Dr Earl Lu along with others from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds who came together in Kakadu national park to see indigenous landscapes and expand their art horizons. On their return to Singapore they created a series of paradigm-shifting exhibitions. The trip was organised by Marjorie Chu of Art Forum gallery assisted by Mark Elliot-Ranken and documented by Bernadette Smith. This documentary goes behind the scenes to uncover the art process from perception to execution and reveals multi-nodal shifts of meaning across cultures. It is a transformative experience for both viewer and artist.
