Ihlein and Williams were invited to participate as ‘environmental agents’ in the NIRIN 2020 Biennale of Sydney. Artistic director Brook Garru Andrew asked us
to examine the material practices of the Biennale organization, with a view to reducing plastic
use. Over 12 months we hosted meetings and potlucks and field trips with the Biennale staff and Board members, focusing on the organization’s environmental footprint.
