Clouds and Symphonies

Clouds and Symphonies is an exhibition of artworks created by artist Vic McEwan during multiple residencies in Falls Creek between 2018-2024. Through photography, video, sound and interactive installation, this exhibition honours local residents by exploring the complex relationship between people and their surrounding environment. It explores how understanding our connection to a particular place, might prepare us to face the complex challenges that lie ahead.
