Formed part of group exhibition of photographs, films, installations and drawings, and sound in response to the artist-researchers involvement with the Lake Bolac landscape and community and research being conducted on Charles Dawson an 18th century businessman who engaged and advocated for the cultural rights of the Indigenous peoples of SW Victoria.

'Flows and Catchments' was formed from a collaboration between artists from across the different teaching and/or researching disciplines, headed by Paul Carter. It was developed from a two day workshop on the themes of water cultures, practices and challenges, held at Deakin University's Phoenix Gallery, Burwood, Vic. (27-28 September 2011). It was first exhibited at the Warrnambool Art Gallery (2 Dec. 2011-Jan. 2012). Further work has resulted in the most recent exhibition (24 May 2012) at Pheonix Gallery, Deakin University, Melbourne.
