Seven hinged cabinets reflected the colonisation of Tasmanian landscape through the use of aerial photographs. A ‘window’ in each cabinet (see below left) contained a diorama which commented on the relationship to landscape.

The dioramas contained a variety of imagery including; roadsigns, historical images and photographs and suggested a less linear and
more allegorical interpretation of history.
