Campus Dreaming

Canvas Dreaming

“Campus Dreaming” an original artwork commissioned by the School of Business: Artists Geoff Sellman, Bunda Bunda artist from the Goreng Nation, with Simon Alexander Cook of the social canvas.

Part mud map, part diagram this artwork presents ideas of connections across the Dharug Country of Western Sydney. The flyover concept captures the University campus locations into a network of links and landscapes. These locations are represented at the junction points or meeting–place circles, as centres of networked learning and innovation and highlight the complexities and connections of business communities and regions.

The structured geometric base joins the mosaic of ecological niches across the Cumberland Plain inland from Sydney Harbour (Gadi), west of Dharawal Country, out to the Nepean–Hawkesbury River (Deeraybin) and south to Macarthur, Bankstown and Liverpool (Mil-pra). The tessellations of tiles can reflect the multicultural influences on Australian design and can suggest all the Industry Partners fit together to build the puzzle.
