The smell of fire residue permeates the space; triggering conflicting memories of winter home fires, and summer bushfire season. Precious gold leaf acts as a light in the darkness; in stark contrast to the carbon black of the burnt logs, and focuses the mind on the precious nature that surrounds us, and is in jeopardy.

If we destroy our environment, our home, we will be void of protection and wonder. Asking the question 'what needs to happen for us to value what we already have’, the work aims to alert us to the value of the environment that surrounds us.
