Ken and Julia Yonetani + Sunrise 21 +The Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre (Mildura, Australia)

Visual artists, Ken and Julia Yonetani will use the residency to further their practice of collaborating with scientists to produce outstanding works engaging with the fragility of the environment. Their recent collaboration with the Australian Institute of Marine Science resulted in the work Sweet Barrier Reef, which represented Australia at the 2009 Venice Biennale. The Water Memory project focuses on water as life-force and carrier of the ‘memory’ of all living entities -past, present and future. Sunrise 21’s expertise in advanced digital mapping and the Freshwater Research Centre’s work on water quality and ecology will enable a research engagement ranging from the microscopic to the macroscopic ‘big picture’.
