The Australian Alps produces 80 per cent of Australia’s freshwater supply yet only comprises 1 per cent of its landmass.
Through massive earthworks, hydroelectric power schemes and complex technical infrastructure, pressurised water is mobilized to generate the electricity required to power the everyday spaces that we inhabit.
CURRENT is designed to provoke a greater appreciation of the systems and technologies necessary to preserve the quality of life we are accustomed to.
The artworks produced for this exhibition illustrate the intrinsic complexity underscoring sustainable practices by focusing on the co-dependent relationship of the natural and constructed environment and their attendant ecologies.
