Rural and urban transformations through raw materials extraction and recultivation play a central role in our work. In the sound and video installation »Hill End« we deal with the subject of transformations of landscape through gold and copper mining, exemplary in the region Hill End, Australia. 1850 the Australian gold rush started there, and still today the area is characterized by it.
