Hyde Park Barracks is home to a major site-specific installation by Indigenous artist Jonathan Jones. The art looks at the symbols of the maraong manaóuwi (emu footprint) and the English broad arrow. Visitors are able to walk on top of the work, a process that intentionally results in the work’s slow destruction.
