Ellen Trevorrow's episode for Everything Is Connected was shot in 2016 over two days. She was already working on the massive collaborative woven sculpture of Kondoli the Whale, with members of her family and wider Ngarrindjeri community.
Kondoli is over 4m long and at the tail 1.4m high and features in the 2017 exhibition. It was initially developed as a collaborative work for the Pacific Encounters project, with Flinders University and Le Havre's Museum for Natural History.
Ellen Trevorrow and her team took us out on country near Narrung to collect rushes. The weavers, traditionally both women and men, now have to travel over 100 kilometers, as far as Strathalbyn on the other side of the Lower Lakes, to find suitable rushes, due to environmental degradation.
