The Silk trees concept by Bob Daly is to illuminate some of the great changes made to the people and the land of Eyre Peninsula SA. The Concept was to create a freestanding forest of silk painted trees 3.5m tall by 1.5m.
Each tree had unique lighting and a fan to breathe life into the trees. Each tree recalls a beautiful and bountiful land through visual images and prose, which leads the viewer on a journey of contemplation and understanding.
Cultural difference explored in relation to the land and its connection to man and enables us to work towards reconciliation.
It is by taking the initiative to come together and work together through art, where the boundaries are less rigid, that will inevitably benefit reconciliation.
