From the artist

Scattered along this ‘street’ in a long-abandoned Western Tasmanian township were several buildings – former dwellings – all in a state of decay. High rainfall and rampant vegetation meant rust and rot combined with the push and pull of the tangled mass of trees and other plants inexorably tearing down the structures. Each building was cocooned in greenery.
