The overlap of land..



We went into the city on Sunday evening especially to see Nine Streams of Derbarl Yerrigan (excellent link) a collaboration between Perth media artist Sohan Ariel Hayes and Whadjuk local Barry McGuire. The projection on the west wall of Foundation Place, between the Town Hall and the David Malcolm Justice Centre and less than a stones throw from where a tree was felled to mark European settlement presents 'an engaging experience for visitors seeking a deeper understanding of Perth's complex history'. Despite the wind and rain showers I was a little disappointed I couldn't catch all three flags unfurled at the same time.. the Australian, the Western Australia and the Australian Aboriginal flags.. two out of three isn't bad I guess :) Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

  1. Very vivid displays. Flags can be particularly challenging when the breeze isn't cooperating!

  3. Excellent shots Grace! Unless the wind cooperates, the flags cab be a challenge but you'll get them another time.

  5. Fine night photograph, Grace. Thank you for the history lesson concerning Perth and Western Australia. Know relations have not always been good, so reconciliation is a good move.

  8. These are wonderful displays. One thing I miss about living in a small town, is the amount of art and creativity.

  9. Among the problems of the world, not being able to photograph flags all unfurled at the same time is right up there with our top problems. I too have had such difficulty more than once. Is it a conspiracy? Flags unfurled at the same time might look like there is some love among those who the flags represent.

  11. What an amazing view. What a service you are providing for Perth, letting the rest of the world see this fabulous cultural display. My pet peeve with flags is that I always get the stars on the wrong side! I think there is an app for that!
