The Derwent project is a collaboration between David Stephenson and Martin Walch; it visualises in new ways the complex natural and cultural history of Tasmania’s Derwent River system. This vast and often inaccessible environment includes Aboriginal and colonial heritage alongside ten hydroelectric developments: its multiple layers of space and time present opportunities to synthesise artistic and scientific paradigms of representation by drawing on geography, history, and archaeology. The visual outcomes are new forms of immersive time-based digital imaging that evocatively reveal hidden layers of environmental information to both specialist and general audiences by creating immersive 360º representations of the river system.
