There is a lot of commentary about communities and individuals' resilience to withstand adversity. Since the COVID outbreak in 2020 I have been thinking about how we as individuals and communities' weather. 'Weathering' when considering the verb, is a shared experience that binds us and all things together. We are shaped, nourished and transformed by the atmosphere that envelops us. It is physical, psychological, magical, and spiritual. It is more than resilience and accounts for us being affected and transformed along with our community and environment. This work 'Flood' responded to these ideas linking them to the climate and atmosphere of Tasmania - portraying the intensity of a specific location and moment while evoking broader connections to the environment we inhabit.
