I look up from the base of a gorge in Western Australia. The ground feels unstable under my feet. I am overcome by the landscape that surrounds me. Personal, social, political, violent histories are embedded here. I am aware that these histories exist, but I do not know them, maybe I cannot really know them. Back home in Parramatta the landscape is different but still carries these histories. The feeling is the same: Vertigo. Unsettled, but at home.
