Australians believe that people who seek refuge are from over there, but what would you do if you had to flee your home? This installation features photos of everyday Australians printed on metal discs and floated on Lake Wendouree, centred around an acrylic ghost-like boat. It poses questions about global population migration due to a range of concerns including war, economic uncertainty and climate change.
