Pulse of the Wetland

Pulse of the Wetland is investigating the ecological dynamic and rhythms of the Macquarie Marshes as they recover from prolonged drought and fire. Using historical and academic research, on-site documentation using sound and video, and community stories – weaving the synchronous narratives into a body of digital works.

Conducted over 12 months in three phases of desk-top research, on-site documentation and story gathering at various sites across the Macquarie Marshes and surrounding communities, the resulting works are designed to be presented back to the Marsh communities and form part of an international showing of work in 2021.
