A hundred years after Canberra’s inception, a curious creature took to its skies for the first time. Patricia Piccinini’s Skywhale is as extraordinary as Canberra is ordinary. (Sorry, Canberra, but it’s your own fault!)
Here, she can be glimpsed floating above the seaweed-like gums of the Victorian bush, singing a brooding song befitting this impossible creature. (Or it might be a fine track by Luke Howard.) Go forth, Skywhale – fire those Canberran neurons!
