Artists at the Helm 
With graphic artist Simone Pilla, I created a digital print that responds to the implications of interdependence in the word ‘nurture’ through a visual motif and narrative fragment. This project responded to the imminent logging of Helms Forest Block near Jalbarragup, in Western Australia’s south west. Building on its previous activist exhibitions Transplanting Disobedience and Bimblebox, Bunbury Regional Art Galleries (BRAG) brought together artists for site visits, workshops, and process documentation to create work illustrating the interactions and tensions of different systems of place-value.
