Artist's Description


ArtMatic Voyager . . .
The first colonists had no idea what they would encounter, so they built their colony ships accordingly.
When a planet was chosen, there would be no going back, there would be no change of mind, it would be all or nothing.
When the landfall option was taken, the colony ship would take it’s last short journey, from orbit to it’s final resting place down below.
Designed so that the greatest proportion of the ship would dig itself deep into the planets crust, a colony ship leaves just a small highly armoured portion visible above the surface.
Here we see the final resting place of the HMAS Bundaberg. Eighty years after landing, the Bundaberg is still the energy supplier and central focus for the city of New Brisbane, a thriving community of some 8,000,000 people.
