    Research output: Non-textual formPhysical Non-textual work


    Rebecca Mayos prints and textiles connect her interests in sustainable practices, local ecologies and forgotten printmaking techniques. In this installation for ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017, Mayo reflects on the history of the Heide site. A series of cloth sandbags printed using eighteenth century Toile de Jouy methods and dyes made from indigenous and introduced plants gathered locally by the artist are stacked to form a wall in the exhibition space. Under the gaze of Yingabealthe Wurundjeri songline tree that has for centuries stood sentinel on the landthe sandbags symbolise an environmental crisis point and highlight the cumulative impact of everyday and habitual activities.
