I had gained some height to capture another image named Capillary and decided I Iiked the view at 5000 feet and hung around there for a while. The question that remains unanswered is why does the large tributary just stop with such an abrupt ending? It’s like a bull dozer has pushed a boat ramp down but if you look at the topography there are no roads into the area. I didn’t drop down in height to check it out so the question remains unanswered.
This artwork is very literal in many ways. The East Alligator River is a tidal river that relies heavily on the surrounding floodplains, to feed back in to the main river system. As the floodplains drain, they create little creeks leading into the river, which moves baitfish off the floodplains and into the East Alligator, which then Barramundi and other marine life feed off. Without the floodplains and seasonal rains, these creeks wouldn't be formed and would not allow for the cycle of life to continue. It would simply become lifeless.
