The Grampians#1

Two decades ago, while researching

her doctoral thesis, ecologist
Suzanne Simard discovered that
trees communicate their needs and send each other nutrients via a network of latticed fungi buried in the soil — in other words, she found,

they “talk” to each other.

This inspired me to start a series

of works showing how trees are connected especially in times of fire, drought and disease.

Grampians#1 shows the landscape after a bushfire, and how one tree reached out to a burnt tree to help start the process of regeneration.
Future works (now in progress) take this concept further with a view under ground where the network of latticed fungi 'communicate'.
