Provenance: The Artist

Literature & references: Joelle Gergis, Sunburnt Country: The History and Future of Climate Change in Australia, MUP, 2018, p. 180:
“Fifty-four percent of the world’s population now lives in urban areas, with a huge 90 percent of Australians calling cities home. These regions are so different to the surrounding natural landscapes that they actually generate their own climates. This urban heat island effect arises from the heavy modification of the land surfaces we live on. For example, dark surfaces absorb significantly more solar radiation, which causes urban concentrations of roads and buildings to heat more than rural areas during the day. Materials commonly used in urban areas for pavement and roofs, such as concrete and asphalt, have significantly different thermal characteristics like heat capacity, conductivity and reflectance… The lack of vegetation in urban areas also compounds the issue by decreasing the cooling effect of tree shading.”

Note: The work depicts the suburb of Cheltenham, taken from a helicopter at a height of 1,000 feet.
