The Perpetrators of Extinction, 2012

The Perpetrators of Extinction, 2012

This work was inspired by a field trip study conducted through ILIRI at the University of New South Wales’ Fowlers Gap Arid Lands Research Station. It is a collograph of grasses from Fowlers Gap with thumbnails on acetate around the edge, depicting prints and marks left in the earth. Shockingly, the majority of them were not footprints of small native mammals, but rather those of foxes, dogs, cats, sheep and feral goats as well as human: the perpetrators of extinction.
