Who Cares for Country

This is a 4-minute sound piece with just a few visuals that flash up at the end. The sound piece was presented in a room with ultra-violet sand on the floor and the text displayed in ultra violet lettering on the wall. The songs in this sound piece are from the CD “Dreaming Songs of the Warumungu Women” and provided with their kind permission and that of Papulu Apparr-kari; and from Gaelic singer Ceitlin Smith.

The exhibition is showing next at An Lanntair Art Gallery in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, from 13 September to 11 October, a partner event at Hebtember Festival.

  1. Thank you. I am sorry you weren’t able to be there. It would be nice to travel the show a bit in the UK. It goes to Stornoway next, and if I could find a way I would travel the show further here. It will be traveling in Australia later on too.


  2. I really loved the clips from the flight decks of a few flights … Not meaning to denigrate at all: I have very strong associations with flight decks, from my first flight after doing a “Fear of Flying” course … Other than which, I liked it all ! šŸ™‚
