Story

Artist Megan Cope is a Quandamooka woman (North Stradbroke Island) in South East Queensland. Here she explains how she collaborated with scientist Roberta Johnson, to share knowledge and co-create an installation from that experience.

Their collaboration resulted in an installation of a melting midden that embodies physical and personal transformations of immediate and intimate significance: transformations in nature as sea levels rise with thermal expansion and become more acid with our massive burning of fossil fuels; personal transformations in the co-creators as they share their different knowledges of disruption to natural patterns of climate change on creatures of the sea that have sustained Aboriginal Australians for tens of thousands of years.
