  1. 1. Felix Wilson Honours Project Overview
  2. 2. The project Waste in Place: The McRobies Gully Tip as Landscape will use representations of the McRobies Gully landfill site in South Hobart to explore contemporary understandings of landscape and its relationship to the aesthetics of human and non-human relations. Humans, animals, birds and others interact in ways that challenge conventional perceptions of ecology on the landfill site. Issues relating to ecology and landscape representation are particularly contested in Tasmania and this site affords possibilities for recalibrating shared aesthetic understandings of waste and the relations between humans and non-humans.
