Often the best writing about art is simple and easy to understand – something that’s not always synonymous with ‘art-speak’ and the language encountered in art galleries and exhibition reviews. Community Critics sees a range of people from different backgrounds write responses to Floating Land projects, describing and interpreting them through their own lens.

Kabi Kabi Reflections

I imagine my wet feet in the sand watching, listening and feeling the stories of the first nations Kabi Kabi people – walking off Hastings Street and walking toward Noosa Woods, where you are hidden by a canopy of trees as you step into scenes of a not forgotten past. With the open air, waves crashing next to projected images tell how First Nations people connect with the land on which you stand. Hearing the sounds of the wind in the pine trees and waves pounding the shoreline with the smells of the ocean in your mind, you are on their land now. Feeling their stories through projected images and art as you are standing amongst ancestors, images float on the water or dance together in a visual display on the sand. It is a chance to stop to reflect on this beautiful land you are standing on as you look out to sea, relating to indigenous culture through a floating land experience.
