Open Aviary is part two in IASKA’s Habitats, a project based on a collaboration between research scientists from CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems and contemporary artists participating in the IASKA artists in residence program. Scientists and artists work with local communities, land care groups and rural students to research the interaction between natural and human living environments in the Wallatin/O’Brian catchment area (Western Australian Wheatbelt).

Habitats focuses on transitional zones where natural and human living environments overlap, clash and intermingle. Works will examine different modes of cohabitation - sometimes conflicting sometimes complementary - between people, plants and animals sharing contested territories.
