This work snipped off three sections of the Bondi to Bronte cliffs at a time when the Howard government had recently excised northern Australia from our migration zone. Here, the paper dashes are as ephemeral as the federal government’s line may prove to be. Recent changes have extended the legislation to cover the whole of Australia. The work won a prize at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi (thanks judge Geoffrey Edwards).
