Deep Heritage

Inspired by the work of 80 year old local geologist Norman Harrison, who meticulously catalogues various rocks found in Perth’s heritage buildings, dating and tracing them back to their origins. Perth City as we know it, was almost built yesterday, yet its walls and foundations contain ancient rock, formed over deep time. Cassie Lynch, Rebecca Orchard, Andrew Williams and Mei Swan Lim have come together to each translate their meaning of the phrase ‘Deep Heritage’. 

Deep Heritage was supported by City of Perth.
