We seek to define an alternative mode of rehabilitation of a sandstone quarry in The Otways in South-East Victoria.
We position rehabilitation as a live and emerging practice that is open ended and site responsive.
We seek to do this through creative and collaborative projects with a range of artists, designers, builders and architects; with educational institutions, government bodies and local organisations.
We question conventional value systems and definitions of production, and instead foreground, education and experimentation; observation and site-responsiveness; slowness and caretaking.
We have developed a phased approach to site and our rehabilitation obligations which is outlined here www.theprojects-quarry.com and will be detailed as we learn from the project over the coming years.
