A cinematic poem 3:00
Projection was developed as part of Arts House’s program Time Place Space:NOMAD in Wotjobaluk Country of the Wergeia Language Group in December 2016.
Down they come
somtimes slithering for a moment.
Sometimes wishing that the journey would come to an end
before the end is there.
But somehow, inside them,
determination to live.
to live until all the oil is gone.
Why is it that they do not fall from the rock?
It's the oil
the oil in thier skin,
the oil that helps them to move.
And the end of the oil
is the end of the their lives.
Watch how they scramble to hold
to hold themselves against the wind.
The wind is terrifying in its strength
but can be fought
can be faught against
the oil itself.
