Interpretive Wonderings by Interpretive Wonderings Team

Jury citation:

Interpretive Wonderings is an important and beautiful body of design research, a collation of interrelated events that began with an invitation to map the landscape of an Aboriginal community-owned station property in southern New South Wales. It offers a critical approach to environmental challenges, illustrating how the sharing of knowledge systems might broaden and deepen our understanding and thereby shed new light on how we might sustain Australia’s fragile landscape for future generations. It establishes a valuable framework for collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in the future, an important step on the path to reconciliation.

Location: Culpra Station (NSW)
