“Western perceptions of land on the other hand position the landscape as the other and the outer, a site to be developed, exploited, and experienced. As a little boy growing up on the land I was constantly evolving within a combination of fear and wonder. The unfolding landscape was filled with forms of heroes and villains contained within nature, seasons, and time. This was and still is providing me with the essential ingredients of connection and experience. My experience of land was not that of conquest, violence, tragedy, or despair yet it existed upon it” – Dean Reilly.
