    Burton’s work typically reframes dialogues about the landscape to create holistic visions of ecologies that include humans and their activities. Human interventions into the landscape are not highlighted as discrete actions upon the land but rather are incorporated as scars and marks that are part of the actual body of the landscape. Snug stories is from Burton’s latest project which was focused on Climate Adaptation and the importance of recognizing anthropogenic information that is both imbedded into the landscape and the history that is contained in the memories of those that lived through extreme events that have written a mark onto the landscape, which forms an ecological palimpsest that can be framed within an artistic practice. The narrative of this work looks at the extreme weather event that led to the Black Tuesday Bushfires in Kingborough and the surrounding areas of Hobart, Tasmania. Rene Burton is currently completing his Masters of Visual Art at AUT.
