For the past 7 years, Patrick Waterhouse has created an extensive archive of colonial representations of Australia. He also took photographs in the Warlpiri communities in Central Australia. Local artists from the Warlukurlangu Art Center appropriated both the historical collection and his photographs by using the traditional Aboriginal technique of dot painting. In doing so they revised their own representation.
