I had an e-mail the other day from Tom Rivard, one of the organisers of the excellent Urban Islands Workshops that I participated in a couple of years ago, telling me about the most recent edition. They are held on Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour, a stunning location, that used to house a shipyard and other institutions. Now the island is a recreational destination and provides camping facilities, shown here. So as not to wear out the grass they rotate the tents and so establish a biophotographic plate where the variation in photosynthetic exposure imprints ever decaying impressions of different shades of green.
