Fed Square commissioned Studio John Fish to curate and produce a new collaborative artwork to be shown in the heart of Narrm (Melbourne) for National Reconciliation Week 2022. This was a unique opportunity to co-create a new large-scale artwork that amplified First People’s culture and knowledge. 

After some consideration, we approached Barkindji man Kent Morris to be lead artist. Through Kent’s vision we were able to engage James Henry to compose a soundscape to accompany the artwork. The team at Cineart were our fabricators and as a final touch, immersive tech studio Phoria came on board to develop an augmented reality filter allowing people to explore the artwork in digital ways. 
After its debut at Fed Square in May 2022 the artwork was also shown at Adelaide Festival in March 2023. 

My role included curation, concept and design development, project management, 3D modelling, overseeing fabrication and lighting design, logistics, promotion, photography and video capture of the artwork.
