On a clear day you can see forever. From the top of St John Street in Launceston the city lays its architectural structure at one's feet, unfolded in chimneystacks and repetitious boxes. The streets disappear and somehow it becomes a notation of settlement – a visual memory of a time encapsulated in a personal representation of how it felt to be there.
