Rainbow’s End


A collection of artefacts from a possible future, curated by Heath Killen.

The year is 2060. A series of catastrophes have decimated the earth’s population. Global communications have been destroyed. We are alone. Here in Australia, those of us who have survived have formed tribes, living in small pockets of the country that are still habitable. We are scattered across the land: the mountains, rivers, deserts, and forests. We create communities in response to our new homes. We use the materials available to us – either found in nature or scavenged from the ruins of nearby cities and towns. Rather than rebuild the civilisation that we lost, we try to forge a new future that will set us on a different path than the one that brought us here.

Works by Liane Rossler, Kevina Jo Smith, Helle Jorgensen, Racket, Valerie Restarick, Michael Gray, Dale Hardiman, SHHORN (Grace and Sean), Kate Rohde, Fred Fowler, Tracy Deep, and Dave Teer.
