The work is about the confluence of intention and happenstance. The work takes the form of a document of enquiry and exploration. Reflecting on Captain Charles Sturt’s arrival in the Mildura region while looking for the Inland sea, and inadvertently discovering the confluence of the Darling and Murray I am making a work that reflects on the idea of searching for something that does not exist, or may exist. The irony is that, in this search something other than what you are hoping for, something unforeseen will be discovered.
