Art on Wheels

September 2012 I was one of a party for DVAA's 'Art on Wheels' project, a super art-mobile that brought an all-sorts of contemporary art practices to Darwin's suburban hotspots.

My contribution:     'Swelter Shelter creates an extended space for Art on Wheels where a large cowhide of tanned black leather forms a tent like enclosure at the rear of the van. The leather has been cut to suggest the forms of shadow and light that tree canopies cast on the ground, like a flayed skin of the visible. This dark visceral canopy shields our own skin from the sweltering sun while drawing attention to the destruction that other life forms suffer for our comfort.'
