ADELAIDE ARTIST DIVES DEEP FOR INSPIRATION...
ON ECOLOGICAL VOYAGE
TO REMOTE CORAL SEA REEF
In December this year, South Australian artist, Deborah Miller, heads to the remote Lihou Reef, in the Coral Sea, on an ecological trip to find inspiration for her artwork in an Adelaide Fringe exhibition next year.
Deborah plans on producing felted silk art works inspired by her voyage to the reef for the exhibition:
ella-mental@ ALDINGA ARTS ECO VILLAGE
20-21, 27-28 Feb, 4-7, 11-14 Mar 2010
10am- 5pm Free
16 Yacca Way, Aldinga SA 5173
The exhibition will also feature work by Adelaide artists, Maria Bray, Jenny Worth, and Julie Doddridge.
Deborah’s trip on the MV Eastern Voyager takes place 4 – 15 December this year to Lihou Reef 600 kilometres off the coast of Australia. She will join a team of marine experts who will explore the ocean, islands and deep reefs, never before seen by humans.
Scientific divers will survey lagoons, count fish, assess coral bleaching and scan lagoon reef structures using marine robots. Wildlife ecologists will document flora and fauna associated with coral cays and collect vital data on seabirds, whales and turtles.
One vital component of the voyage will be to consider how remote we really are, from the creatures that share our planet? An average six degrees of separation was proved in a recent study of 5 million internet-users. If all species consume one-another in the global food web, human beings are only a few degrees separated from all life on earth?
