 Distant Voices

My current work involves combining blind embossings of representations of birds that used to be easily seen in Melbourne (but are no longer), with contemporary images of Melbourne.  These images contain descriptions of the songs of the lost birds. This work is based on a comparison between my own bird list (53 species) and the first bird list for Melbourne, made by pastoralist John Cotton in the 1840s (157 species).
