Oceanic Living Data animates the inaugural Burrinja Climate Change Biennale
3 October 2015 to 31 January 2016.

The biennale is an initiative of the Burrinja Cultural Centrein Victoria's Dandenong Ranges, that serves as a hub for arts and culture in the region. I am proud to present Living Data in this place where I feel a deep connection and a commitment to share that experience. I grew up in Kallista beside the Sherbrooke forest where my parents shared stories about their Aboriginal and European heritage.
