Undulating Water, Spinifex, Escarpment, Spinifex Neutral, Ashlar
The Desert palette is inspired by the iconic red sands, the sage shrubbery and the cooler tones of the vast and cloudy lakes.
The Saltwater palette is inspired by the movement and transition of water along the coastline creating the different tones of blues, showcasing the textures of the sand grains and ochre rock once the water retreats.
The Rainforest palette is inspired by the deep greens in the vast tree canopies and the rich browns from the thick and twisting vines of trees. Golden yellow is introduced from the dried fig tree leaves scattered across the forest floor.
The Freshwater palette is inspired by the different compositions found in the rock, mud and sand, the vivid green foliage from the lomandra native grass that grows abundantly on the riverbanks and the reflecting colour as the shallow water ripples.
The Spinifex palette is inspired by the yellows, golds and reds of the plant, once stripped off its outer coat. Accents of deep green are scattered through, indicative of the vibrant shrubs as they coat the arid land.
Waterways and textured sands inspire Sandbank, Shallows, and Undulating Water. Dry Bark showcases weathered tree bark. And, Escarpment captures the beauty of stone cliffs.
This is the story of who we met, what we learned and how we used that knowledge to enrich our understanding of First Nations people, whilst exploring what inspired learning spaces can be, and how we could help realise those spaces for the benefit of all Australians.
