Avery Green's person is intimately tied up with her history. This goes back as far as you want to cast it. The ancient volcanic/geological history of the area is inscribed in her physical substance through the story-telling at work in the Over-The-Top-Terrain ceiling pieces. The land on which she stands is clay which, as indicated in the geologist’s soil report, is of volcanic origin. The bricks she is built from were made from nearby Northcote clay. As such, her material substance is literally part of the geological history of the area, and the land on which she stands. This deep history intersects with the importance of indigenous story-telling – a dimension that needs far more architectural exploration in Australia.
In terms of her more recent history of the past 100 years or so, title records are in the gallery below.
