Rise and Falls by Blak Douglas – 107 on the Rocks
The object of this piece is to ‘reclaim’ the urban facade in an attempt to restore the landscape to pre Colonisation. Imagining the cascading freshwater making its way down from the site of the Sydney Observatory. Prior to the rapid development of the docklands & its surrounds, the beauty of this tract of Cadigal Country would have been astounding.
