‘KNOWING Araucaria cunninghamii’ follows one species of the ancient Araucariaceae family that is endemic to the unceded Aboriginal lands now known as South East Queensland. Araucaria cunninghamii plays a pivotal role in European colonisation and ongoing settlement of Meanjin/Brisbane and surrounds, valued as it is for the characteristics and properties of it’s timber that is known colloquially as hoop pine. A long duration research and cumulative project, ‘KNOWING Araucaria cunninghamii’ is attentive to the species deep entanglements with/in differing geographical, industrial, historical, ecological, technical, and cultural onto-epistemologies. The research is intended to be conveyed and articulated iteratively through multi-modal practices.
