WaterFieldWork : a working lexicon for critical refugia in arid landscapes
Lee, Gini (2010) WaterFieldWork : a working lexicon for critical refugia in arid landscapes. In Parodi, Oliver, Lee, Gini, & Bava, Henri (Eds.) Towards Resilient Water Landscapes : Design Research Approaches from Europe and Australia. KIT Scientific Publishing, Germany.
Algebuckina Waterhole exists as a permanent waterhole near a north-south dirt road and an old trainline on the Oodnadatta Track - lines that once opened up the arid lands of central South Australia but are now bypassed. It also exists as the final and largest freshwater waterhole at the end of the Neales River system. It is a critical biodiversity site, a cultural place and a working environment. It is seen to need a resilient management plan that encompasses diverse interests and impacts. Its managers sense that the theories and practices emerging out of landscape disciplinary systems may be of help. Work-in-progress research towards a management methodology are presented through posing scenarios on how landscape thinking and design, informed by an emergent textual and visual lexicon for water landscapes, can intersect with scientific fieldwork to produce useful and transferable outcomes for Algebuckina.
