Walking the Merri expands on a seven-day performative walk undertaken by Rebecca Mayo and Lesley Harding in March 2013. Following the Merri Creek from its source at Heathcote Junction to its confluence with the Yarra River in Abbotsford, they traced the meanderings and human redirections of this historically significant and contested waterway.

I had the pleasure of joining Rebecca and Lesley on day 4 of the walk, which became a starting-point for a new series of lithographic works. For Trickle, Stream, Creek: Water from Three Merri Creek Sites, I applied different creek water samples onto the lithographic plate – using the lo-shu technique – to produce an image. With the properties of each water sample producing a different effect on the lithographic plate, I was able to map/document the creek in a unique and fascinating way.
