Story

"Our land itself contains the power to seed and grow Treaty - all we have to do is grasp and wield this powerful force, visually, scientifically, and musically."

Elizabeth Shepherd,
Indigenous Australian musician and composer, writer and artist
May 28, 2019

Lisa Roberts: "...'Spirits make noise' is part of the 2020 Seeding Treaties animated installation at Mawson station, Antarctica, made for people on the ice to play to welcome whales and to celebrate winter solstice, and to respond to with their own art for feeding back into the project as it travels. The installation design is inspired by drawings of a sea urchin made by Paul Fletcher, and by descriptions by Bruce Pascoe, of traditional Aboriginal meeting houses. Both forms make me think of the belly of a whale. Before sending the installation to Antarctica I made this video if it in action, and timed it to music by Jason Benedek:"
