Time does not stay still. Unfolding Rhythms II draws attention to the infinite progression of nature’s rhythms in various frequencies and times. Nature’s events of organic decomposition are captured by an experimental biochrome process and time-lapse photography. These methods allow observing the transformation of flora by revealing what’s usually invisible to the eye. The significance of these plants to the Quandamooka Peoples of Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) for medicinal purposes demonstrates the importance of the relationship between the natural world and ourselves. Flora in this exhibition includes images of edible coastal plants like Sesuvium portulacastrum and Carpobrotus glaucescens that were used for marine stings and insect bites, as well as Eucalyptus with insect repellent, antiseptic and anaesthetic properties.
