The Tarkine in Motion is an annual event held by the Bob Brown Foundation to provide artists with a chance to get out to the wild coastlines, rivers, and rainforest of the Tarkine region, to be inspired, and to make art.
A remote and diverse area of Tasmania, the Tarkine is one of the largest unprotected wilderness areas in Australia. It faces a range of threats from logging, mining, and unregulated off-road drivers.
This April, we journeyed out to the Arthur River basecamp to provide live mapping support. Our task was simple, to provide a geographic context for the artworks being produced, and communicate the breadth and diversity of the landscape to an online audience.
