Outflow depicts the runoff water from the floodplains entering the surrounding seas. Here, the water is affected by tides as it mixes. This “in and out” motion depicts reciprocating motion. Aerial image taken over Shady Camp, Van Diemen Gulf.
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.
