"The spherical shape references ancient European and Indigenous depictions of time travel and healing. Israeli physicist Amos Ori designed a time machine in this shape and similarly the form comes from a story that speaks of Aboriginal magic trees that form circle shapes in their branches and are in fact time-travelling objects."

BROOK ANDREW—RETHINKING ANTIPODES
In 2016 Brook Andrew undertook a comprehensive study of the collections of the Cambridge Museums, and the extensive print collection of the British Museum, London, as part of the Australian Print Workshop’s Antipodes project.
In the resulting suite of eight photolithographs—acquired by Geelong Gallery in 2017—he uses reproductions of 18th century satirical prints by British artist James Gillray as his primary source material: specifically a number of prints in which Gillray addressed British Imperialism, the political climate of the late 18th century and various conflicts (between Britain and France, and Britain and the colonised).
