The clove hitch is a non-slip knot often used by farmers. Securely fastened to a rigid beam, it’s symbolic of man’s often futile attempts to restrain and tame nature. The place I’m from, Bimbi, means ‘Place of many birds’ in Wiradjuri language. As a white woman of the land I’m placed between its past and recent histories.
