Based at Lake Clifton, Western Australia, Adaptation uses residencies, events and a community outreach program to stimulate debate about human inaction, intervention and responsibilities regarding ecology.
In a broad scoping of issues surrounding life and ecology, Adaptation, SymbioticA’s long-term project, opens important dialogue and debate surrounding human inaction, intervention, responses and responsibilities to the world at large.
Embedded in Lake Clifton, south of Mandurah, Adaptation proposes a dynamic program of production-based artist residencies and events with a vibrant outreach and community program.
Lake Clifton as a location and a metaphor, offers a microcosmic peak into the broader issues of ecology and life itself.
The Adaptation project and its resulting research formed the inspiration for Unruly Ecologies: Biodiversity and art – A SymbioticA symposium, which was held from 26 to 28 November 2010.
