The Listening Project: The past, present, and future of a place submerge us. It is all enticing. Despite this we forget. We live, breath, and laugh in the realm of everyday life. We live in a shallow future, the future of grocery shopping and evening commutes. What if we re-discover our surroundings. Re-establish a connection to the land. It is a connection that the indigenous people of the world have preserved. In Australia, the aboriginals refer to ‘country’. I understand country to be a metaphor for the land, for home, the wind. Country holds the past, present, and future. This project will explore an envisioned future – learning from the rich culture of the Dja Dja Wurrung.
