Terra nullius loungeroom
Engaging through a childhood fascination with exploring, discovering and claiming. Terra nullius loungeroom explores the ideas of discovery and ownership. The work presents a land [lounge room] clearly owned by Aboriginal Peoples, however yet to be “discovered” by a lurking presence [the viewer]. Push through the eucalypts to “discover” a land [lounge room] “belonging to no-one”. Terra nullius loungeroom is part educational, part challenging the status quo and part experiential.
