walk about airborne

ARTSPACE Sydney, 1993 and Experimental Art Foundation Adelaide, 1994

Sometimes Australian indigenous people go on a so called walk about. They set out without an outwardly defined idea of destination or time. An accessible spherical object (diameter 2,80 m) with a feathered surface and straw walls is supported by an invisible wooden construction. The straw has a strong odor of its own and insulates against sounds from the outside.
