Dunkeld artist Trevor Flinn worked with the Martin family at their property Cropwell, between Barham and Deniliquin in New South Wales.
Friends, family and neighbours of Mark and Sue Martin were treated to a spectacular night with artist Trevor Flinn orchestrating projections, fire and light installations. Peter Redfearn and Will Eldridge provided some wonderful tunes.
The following day – AFL Grand Final Day – a group of locals worked with Trevor to decorate an old duck shooter’s hut using crepe paper and sticky tape. It was a beautiful decorative effort, and it lasted a few short days before the wind carried it away.
It was the second of four TWIG residencies held in September and October 2013 across the region.

Over the course of the day, a small but dedicated group of volunteers helped decorate an old duck shooter’s hut using crepe paper and sticky tape. Much like the famous football banners that are painstakingly built by numerous volunteers only to be destroyed by the players as they run onto the field, this decorative effort lasted but a few short days before the wind carried it away.
