The series, (Deleted scenes) From an untouched landscape, discusses the [absence] of Indigenous artifacts and culture from the Australian farming landscape. The first European farmers forced the local indigenous people off their traditional lands and cleared the landscape for agriculture; in the process, [farmers] ethno-culturally [cleared] the landscape of Aboriginal identity (Artist statement 2013)

Artist statement, 2013(Deleted scenes) From an untouched landscape discusses the absence of Indigenous artefacts and culture from the Australian farming landscape. The first European farmers forced the local Indigenous people off their traditional lands and cleared the landscape for agriculture in the process ethno-culturally clearing the landscape of Aboriginal identity. This series seeks to challenge the notion that the Australian landscape was 'untouched' before European colonisation and in fact that the contemporary absence of Indigenous culture in the landscape was censored by the process of colonisation.
