Unknow, 2021


Invisible ground conditions are revealed in the ecosystems they support. Ancient geology, its hydrology and composition have cursory effect on how we think the built environment other than sites for farming or extraction of resources.  The three maps produced on the occasion of The Climate Imaginary exhibition, Melbourne Design Week 2021, visualise the geology and aquifers under what we call Melbourne and the pre 1750 EVC/Ecological Vegetation Classes they sustain(ed). They encourage an unknowing of the way we conventionally see and know, and invite this knowing into rethought processes of making the built environment.
