Jedess Water Bottle Cooler - Talaroo Springs
Jedess Hudson is a descendant from the Ewamian and Western Yalanji people of North Queensland. As an emerging artist she creates and explores traditional stories with a contemporary perspective.
Dhalaru Gogo (Talaroo Springs) are made up of numerous hot thermal pools connected in underground channels. These springs are located at Talaroo Station on Ewamian country - my traditional homelands.
These pools of boiling hot water have many medicinal properties and have been utilised throughout countless generations to cook meat, bush tucker, soothe pains and support maternal women’s business.
