The name of this piece is ‘song birds and dance bugs’ which was actually the starting point of the piece, Caleb thought of the name then created a world around these cool words. The interesting thing about the piece is the contrast between the dark blue sky and water with the yellow green glow of the figures.
It fits the journey theme for Caleb in the way that his favourite parts of the journey are the little spots along the way that surprise you and he think Darwin is a lot like that as a city.
