Summary An imaginative arts project inspired by the Volcanic Plains region of Western Victoria will be showcased in Warrnambool this week where participants will also be able to experience the art of dry stone walling. The aim is to imagine the life of the stones and to re-perform and experience what it might have been like to work alongside a team of stonewallers from the late 1800's out in the fields producing about 30 meters of wall per day. This imaginary archaeology provides lesson in the doing of our ongoing relationship to the land and to place and place-making.
Notes Workshop and exhibition of the resulting stone wall work on the courtyard of the WAG was in conjunction with a symposium at the event space, Deakin on Timor, 23 Feb. 2013.
