AN ENVIRONMENTAL PORTRAIT OF BUNDANON
Culturescape is an environmental portrait of Bundanon created as part of a three-year Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage project, ‘When Science Meets Art: An Environmental Portrait of the Shoalhaven River Valley’. This project was a collaboration between Macquarie University and industry partners Bundanon Trust and the Australia Council. The project researchers were artist Nigel Helyer, environmental scientist Mark Taylor, and media researchers John Potts and Mark Evans.
This portrait of Bundanon comprises an interactive environmental map, an environmental history of the region, representation of a number of walks across the site, and the documentation of five environmental artworks by Nigel Helyer, all initially installed at Bundanon. The interactive map concerns the forensic analysis of minerals in the Shoalhaven catchment as a means to understand human occupation and modification of the landscape.
