Nature as a glutton

The other day you were at Harold park, in Sydney, surveying the area for a possible tour coming up in August/September.
Whilst there you met another artist taking images of wasteland, an interesting man whose interest is more on the resilience of nature, and the beauty of regeneration.
We talked and exchanged links and opinions.
Since he made a little video shot at the old Tram depot in Harold park.
The artist is Gary Deirmendjian, here is his link and here his youtube chanel.

    Hey Gary, thanks for passing by.
    The tour I talk about in the post will not be a concert, but an actual guided tour.
    I did and keep doing many of them as part of my practice (see the link to the page ‘Self Guided Tours’), and i am getting ready for a set of them in the coming spring 2010 (september).
    Harold park will be one location.
    i will keep you posted.
    Cheers
