A city walk through country, site\sight\cite is a virtual tour-site exhibiting nine contemporary places significant to the population of the Brisbane metropolis. Positing and reviewing the concept of relationship to land and between people, these sites constitute places where the duality and duellist reality of Indigenous and coloniser society are at play. In an era of environmental and economic crisis consideration of such duality can contribute to the growing acknowledgement of the social need for a moral and critical philosophy in Australia that sheds light on "the current mechanisms of domination, and projects the possibility of a society which is better suited to satisfy the legitimate needs and desires of human beings" (Gardiner, M. (2000). Of Woodsheds, Politics and Cultural Theory, Memorial University of Newfoundland, pp. 1-2)
Construction of a website and use of new media arts to communicate the Indigenous philosophical concept of a custodial ethic; in collaboration with 16 media arts practitioner.
