Project Name:

The Corner goes ‘Strait Home’

Date:

1 July 2011 – November 2011

Location:

The Corner, State Library of Queensland

Requirements:

Babies mat will need to be made from thick material such as rubber or mattress sponge as per previous baby mats produced for the Corner. Design will need to incorporate elements such as blue water, rocky spaced landscape (soft texture) , green for vegetation and brown for soil around a three dimensional shape of a dugong in the centre of the mat as seen in the aerial shot of Murray Island below. It would be great to also include the two smaller islands Dauar and Waier as positioned in the Map below – These will just look like normal islands using browns, greens and a sandy colour (does not have to be two dimensional). The babies mat is a place of exploration and discovery for babies in The Corner and this should be reflected in the varied textures and shapes used to create the mat.

Images & Colour Scheme



Colour scheme – dark blue, lighter blue (Sea) Sandy shade for sand, grey to represent rocky landscape and the colour of the Dugong if we could also incorporate green for the vegetation on the island also a strong feature in the story of Gelam.





Additional Notes
Story of Gelam - In Meriam tradition, the three Murray islands were formed by mythical ancestors; sea creatures who travelled across Torres Straits. The islands were shaped by Gelam, who travelled in the form of a dugong from Moa (Mua) in western Torres Strait. Gelam moved rich, red soil from Mua hill to Mer and also brought coconut palms, many varieties of yam and other food plants to the island. He spat out two red bean seeds and these became the two smaller islands of Dauar and Waier.

Additional Notes

One day Tagai and his crew of Zugubals (beings who took on human form when they visited Earth) were fishing from their outrigger canoe. They caught no fish, and so Tagai, the leader and the best fisherman of all, left the canoe and walked onto the nearby reef to look for fish there. He was gone for a long time. While waiting for him the crew grew hotter and hotter — they dived into the sea but even that didn't cool them off. Only by drinking water would they be cooled, but the only water in the canoe belonged to Tagai, who had carefully stored it in coconut shells which he had hung over the side.

How the men longed for water! As they grew hotter and thirstier they decided they could wait no longer. They hauled the coconut shells up into the canoe and drank the deliciously cold water. When Tagai returned he was furious that all of the drinking water for their voyage had gone. In his fury he killed all twelve of his crew. Because they were Zugubals, he returned them to the sky and placed them in two groups, Usal (the Pleiades) and Utimal (Orion). He told his crew to stay in the northern sky and to keep away from him. Now when the crew wish to appear in the eastern sky, they must signal their coming by causing thunder and lightning, and Tagai, hearing this, dips below the western horizon.

The people of the Torres Strait look up to Tagai and from his position in the night sky know when the seasonal rains will come and when they should plant crops. When Tagai's left hand (the Southern Cross) dives towards the sea the first rain of the season, Kuki, will begin.
