Cultural Reflections – Continuous Connections reshapes the built environment and nature into new forms that reflect Indigenous knowledge systems continually building and regenerating, reinforcing First Peoples' cultural continuity since time immemorial.
Images merge and cycle infinitely, expressing the continuity of knowledge over time and the intertwining of stories and histories. Symbolically this reflects the transferral, maintenance or reconstruction of culture throughout the generations.
