‘Travelin’ Beyond the Homeland’ represents an attempt to break out of our Australian suburban past and a war on terror that has caused an insular world view. Exacerbated by a fear of the other the home can become a cage, but here it is transformed into a dwelling that is free in its difference, colour and eccentricity. On springs, it denotes a vast, bounding, far reaching ability to travel beyond the boundaries of fear. Crossing borders with a lightness of thought, being and judgement. A lightness that enables us to throw off the blanket of suppression imposed by the powers that be.
