Paperbark detail #01 Canning River is part of visual exploration of city wetlands. Many areas around the Canning River are natural wetlands which flood during the winter months. Some areas have been infilled over the years for subdivision.

Wetlands are a natural transition zone between the river and the dry catchment areas. These transition zones are always undergoing change brought on by seasonal cycles. Likewise, they are a visual metaphor for change, or decay and birth, rejuvenation and stagnation.

The regional park forms a buffer between the surrounding commercial precinct, suburbia and the river. Small pockets remain of samphire and paperbark wetlands. These are important breeding grounds for water birds and they also act as a filtration system to water runoff before it reaches the river.

Restoration of wetlands which have previously been infilled is now being undertaken by volunteers in areas along the Canning and Swan Rivers. This is a hand printed silver gelatin fibre based print and included in the Dissociation exhibition.
