This tactic involves cutting and overlaying spatial connections through existing architectural space, opening up the spaces to allow for multiple perspectives. The colonial system is eroded, yielding new levels of enquiry and consciousness and allowing space for multiple, alternate histories, stories and viewpoints which are permanently linked to place and Country.
The space within the channels is treated as form or ‘space-objects’ within existing built fabric. These channels collide and cross in complex ways reflecting the dual cultures of the colonial and the Indigenous. This erodes the ideology of the existing, effecting ruptures in the spatial system and thereby its attached ideology. Eroding the existing colonial architectural form encourages acknowledgement, enquiry and perception. The tactic allows for the suppressed but enduring link to place and Dja Dja Wurrung Country, via the spatial channel connections to the Indigenous Interpretive Garden, which explores the themes of fire and water.
