Chippendale, NSW

Artist's Statement

Koalatron is a comment on what could happen in the future, if we don’t protect the koalas and conserve their native habitat. Through conservation and teaching of environmental practices to the youth of Port Macquarie, we ensure koalas will be enjoyed in the region by future generations to come and avoiding them being replaced by robots.
