A new work by Kent Morris commissioned by MUMA and the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University has been unveiled on the Clayton Campus.
The large-scale installation in the entrance of the building on Exhibition Walk, Cultural Reflections – Continuous Connections #1 2O22, manipulates technological infrastructure and nature into new forms that reflect both Indigenous and Western knowledge systems.
By reconstructing elements from the built environment through a First Nations lens, Morris reveals the presence and patterns of Aboriginal history, culture and knowledge in the contemporary Australian landscape and reinforces the continuity of First Nations culture.
