Following strolling through the free exhibit at the NGV, at Federation Square, of Murcutt's recently completed Islamic Centre:
I like the idea of making small exhibits of ongoing or recently completed buildings, open to the public. Gives an opportunity to weave the project, its intentions, and it's making into the imagination of a larger community, beyond the user, in the present.
"Bunjil sent the ancestor spirits to create
he sung the Country.
They made the mountains and valleys,
he sung the people.
They made all the creeks and the rivers,
he sung all the creatures.
He sung the law
How to be in the Country
How to care for the family and children
To remember our ancestors and old people.
If his laws are broken, he destroys.
The ancestor spirits finished their work
and set up their camps in the sky
- they are the stars
We dance, we sing
