Collaborations with Nature

In the Stream

Over 400 ‘creek creatures’ were suspended over the concrete stormwater canal at Clear Paddock Creek as part of the significant community involvement in theMemory Line Project for the Restoring the Waters Project. Made by hundreds of local school children the ‘creatures’ represented many of the fauna that would have lived in and around the original Clear Paddock Creek and could be returned to the system after its restoration. The project sought to emphasise what had been lost in the past and what it is hoped will be regained in the future.

 

The brightly coloured installation swelled and rippled in the breeze as if the creatures were swimming in a moving river - symbolically celebrating the return of life to the restored creek.
