Whether it be GM canola, coal, fracking or logging old growth forests, art reflects the culture around it, or does it?  In 2014 it is more than appropriate that art reflect the discord many regional people experience in relation to the rate of change of their physical environment.

In regional WA there is no separation, proximity gives a distinct set of codes and values, regardless of one’s opinion.
