Tasmanian Landscape (Urpflanze)

This work explores Tasmania’s political and environmental landscape through the representation of flora and land using media taken form the industrial and natural landscape. The form is inspired by Goethe’s idea for a plant archetype – a single stem with endless species evolving from it. Here, the central stem is influenced by Glover’s lyrically painted eucalypts and flora endemic to Tasmania.
