In the backyard at Kandos with 'Rocky' (the mountain) in the background

At Kandos NSW

This is the first time in 2 years that the grass has been growing and green.
The plants introduced to Australia are in the foreground, the mountain is covered with Eucalyptus trees and cliffs are sandstone.

Symmetrical Planting was unwound on Thursday, 8th February, 2007. Balls of gauze from the unwinding travelled home with some delegates from the second International Art in Early Childhood Conference (which was held in Armidale). The gauze had taken on the smell of the poplar trees that had been confined by its warp and weft.
