Where Lakes Once Had Water is a sensorial longform video that transports us to remote ancient dry lakes of Australia's Northern Territory. The work takes us on an imaginative journey, exploring the labour of scientists and traditional owners as they dig and delve into the past, reading the signs and signals in the landscape, over concepts of deep time. Commissioned by ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH) in conjunction with Bundanon.
