In an immersive audiovisual installation that re-imagines the relationship between nature and culture, Starrs & Cmielewski configure the land itself as active, not neutral, and able to speak about our human impacts upon it. Using imagery captured by drones, detailed aerial views of Australian landscapes and waterways are dynamically manipulated in ways that reveal their underlying fragility; while Alex Davies’ surround soundscape invites contemplation of the impact of climate change on natural ecologies.
