Australia's inland rivers are generally ephemeral and following
rain the water quickly disappears. Water sometimes collects
in 'soaks' where it lies just below the surface and can be
discerned by subtle differences in the tone and texture of
the surrounding earth. This work seeks to capture the essence
of the trace, or afterimage, of water in Australia's dry inland.
Inland Rivers quickly swell during heavy rain, taking the
colour of the earth with them. They may breach their banks
and flood surrounding land before they disappear.
