Migration Messages 2013

‘Migration Messages’ 2013, is a 10 meter shipping chain suspending individual messages in 40 recycled plastic wine bottles. Each message is written on a luggage tag, symbolizing the journey of migration to Australia. One end fly’s the Ozzie Flag while the other is anchored into the sand by the waters edge.

Inspired by my own migration to Australian and becoming an Australian citizen, this work celebrates and sends messages of love, hope and dreams … ‘to beautiful people in far away places.’
