|Looking out and across, up and down, the river sometimes becomes a cloud
is a site specific map work for the new Shepparton Art Museum in Shepparton, Victoria. It is a propositional map for a future Shepparton. In it, plans of arterial roads and local river ways are overlaid with equally abstract visuals, including the shape of a set of clouds the artist observed on a visit to the city one afternoon in November 2020 and the outline of the view that can be seen opposite the Art Wall. The convergence of these wildly different types of visual data creates whimsical connections and new possibilities. I is a plan for a future that considers permanence and impermanence as it looks up, down, out, across and back to look forward.
