In November 2013 Gordon Gray (Noongar Elder) and I visited the first site of significance at Greenough Flats in Western Australia, we were met with a fox. The first encounter there was with a dying fox which we thought had been caught in a trap. After walking up the mound we were met by a King Brown, with its head severed and ants feeding off it. The fox had killed the snake but in the meantime the snake had poisoned the fox, both of which were dying. And finally, the ants fed off the snake until it was a carcass. In a fabulist way at a mythological and massacre site this encounter began a long term project where the landscape held multiple identities pre and post colonisation.
A few months later, we returned to the same place to find the fox decaying and melded into its surroundings. These were signs of where to point the camera and a feeling of being lead and shown. The landscape was directing both the photography and film works.
