Sydney Festival 2018 art installations Jurassic Plastic by Hiroshi Fuji and Four Thousand Fish by Emily McDaniel raise questions about our connection to the environment. They challenge us to think about the sustainability of the lifestyle we’re leading.
Traditional Aboriginal cultures were able to survive for over 65,000 years by appreciating the concepts of sustainability, reciprocity and respect. Today, not only do we not value that traditional knowledge the way we should, but we live in a society where it’s commonplace for us to engage in consumerism without considering the consequences of how something is procured.
