MUSIC OF STONES
Every day I walk along the Merri Creek and the other day it was very overcast and Murky. I wanted to create a small publication by way of artistic response to my sensations as I do the walk. Here is the poem i wrote, that is the starting point for a mini concertina booklet.
Merri Merri means stony in Aboriginal and that is why it is called Merri Creek. I called it Music of stones, because the daily walk for me is my music, and the Stones refers back to the original Aboriginal inhabitants.
The project feeds into my professional life as a graphic design educator. It is central to many of the courses that I teach.
