Fantastic mixed media exhibition by Jo Caspari yesterday, as part of the Quandamooka Festival. Staged in the beautiful North Stradbroke Island Museum on Minjerribah (Straddie) Jo’s exhibition was an audio visual meditation on being On Country, island beauty & damage, and was in part illustrated by David Hannan’s stunning contemporary footage of Morovo lagoon in the Solomons set to an original score by Jo’s son Leon. Jo then highlighted the vast library resource of the OAA as part of a presentation about the future of ‘Virtual Ocean’ exhibits, enabling mass audiences a reef experience via digital projection, 4-7D installations and VR. All told it was a truly inspired way to share the OAA vision with Straddie...thanks Jo!

When this computer modelling was done in 1973, the year 2050 seemed eons away. But now it’s very close. Coral reefs worldwide are predicted to be extinct by then, Pacific Islands such as Tuvalu entirely under water. Amazing the warnings unheeded for all these decades...

Some corals look like undersea gardens, gently blowing in the breeze. Others look like alien brains. But in their skeletons are clues that promise to give scientists a detailed picture of the weather from 500 years ago. Reading these bones? Easy. As long as you have the world's most powerful X-ray laser.
