Breathing Space

Breathing Space is an evocative sound installation for the National Museum of Australia’s Garden of Australian Dreams.

Donations to the 2023 annual appeal helped the Museum enliven the central garden, creating a space where visitors can reflect on the vast and rich stories they have encountered in our galleries.
