Work Overview

'The eagle flight' or 'Bunjil' is inspired by my friend Carolyn Briggs, an elder of Boonwurrung Australian Aboriginal people of Kulin Nation in the region more known as Birrarung or Melbourne. Its dedicated to Boonwurrung people of Victoria

We are facing a time of great challenge, because of climate change, causing sea level rise. Our first nations people can help us learn how we need to act, because of their thousands of generations of experience.

Here is an aboriginal story and perhaps coincides with formation of Port Phillip Bay 10,000 years ago when climate change was happening and sea level rise has risen.Tasmania then has separated from the main land and become to be an island on its own. The sea level did rise and formed the bay known today as 'Port Phillip Bay'.
