STATEMENT ABOUT THE CREATION OF THE ARTWORK
So what makes a species so resilient in one part of the world, and not in another? In Australia, corvids (ravens and crows) are thriving and adapting. In Iceland, they’re under threat. Eye of the Corvus: Messenger of Truth aims to present the landscape from the perspective of these birds, underpinned by scientific understandings. What might be revealed to us about the current state and future of our world through the eye of these birds? Click on the link above to find out more about this project.
IN THE FIELD
This video was produced for the CORRIDOR project’s Science Hub Orange Cowra Cabonne 2020 Program. The focus is environmental corridors, soundscapes, plant + bird identification relative to monitoring techniques, habitat and waterways.
