krakani lumi (‘place of rest’) is a standing camp located in wukalina (the Mount William National Park) for the Aboriginal Land Council of Tasmania.
It serves as accommodation for a guided walk through the cultural landscape, from wukalina (Mt William), to larapuna (Eddystone Point).
The language of the project is derived from the siting, form and qualities of the traditional seasonal shelters of Tasmania’s first peoples. This context and the notion of the story-telling interior is an important conceptual foundation for the work. The telling of the creation is an initiation into the spiritual and cultural interior of the landscape, and the open spatiality of the traditional half-dome form amplifies this experience within the larger room of the landscape. Through the revelation of the interior a narrative of concealing and revealing is told, allowing the Aboriginal community to self-determine the audience and occasion of their story.
