On my first day as an artist-in-the-park at the Territory Wildlife Park I walked a full lap of the park, seeking simply to familiarise myself with the spaces in which I might work. Along the way I found a wattle blossom in the centre of the track and was delighted by the rich oranges and yellows in the flower. While I might have passed this by in the search for a more typically Top End plant, it provided an invitation I could not refuse, and became the first design of my residency.
