Molten is the South Alligator system in Kakadu National Park. It shows a series of smaller circular actions converging to form one massive motion. There is no focus point just an overall presence of rotary motion. Aerial image taken over Kakadu National Park.
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.
