Reflections from The Tanks
Jill Chism

This is a multilayered project which incorporates the history of the site using inlaid images of historical maps, drawings, objects and sayings. It also reflects the surrounding environment of the mountainous landscape of Cairns, the nearby Trinity Inlet, and various species such as the barramundi and crocodile. These different layers portray how the site has been shaped from the past to the present and explores the notion of life and history as a constantly changing form.

Reflections from the Tanks was installed in 2012 with approximately 40 square metres of double layered Art Glass and with an internal layer of LED sheet lighting.
