Drawings in the sand through the interplay of wind and sturdy desert grass. Using the grass-stalks as a compass, the wind has drawn circles around each plant. At first they must have been very faint, but after days and days of strong wind from different directions they are now clearly visible, engraved in the red soil where they will remain till the next sporadic downpour washes them away. Then the painstaking process can start all over again. Uluru and Kata Tjuta are not the only natural expressions of Australian desert art!

  1. this is what I aim at in my art: that it may grow through me like the wind through those grasses
