Speculative Landscapes: Regionalism and Rurality
This work investigates the continued speculative practice of rural localities in regional New South Wales. It is a document of nowhere and everywhere simultaneously. As the ubiquitous grain tower rises as if to signal life within the community remains healthy. It is both a landmark to speculative living and monument to severe cultural depression. This is a contribution to the Australian Vernacular, a landscape about the any-man, from any where. It is as much about a collected Australian culture as it is about white familiarity and home-life, particularly frontiersmanship.
