Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Rising as high as 578 metres above sea level, the extraordinary linear striping of the domes is due to the differences in clay content and porosity of the sandstone layers. The play of incised lines around every form also establishes a rhythmic wave that draws the eve through and around the installation, replicating the movement through the landscape as our eyes follow strata layers, fault lines and the ripples of a sand dune or Spinifex row.
