Mountain to Mouth 2016: ephemeral art

As described in the companion posts to this one (Walk this land and 80km of extreme art), Mountain to Mouth 2016 featured a central artwork taking the form of a canoe. As walkers crossed the landscape accompanying "Canoe" to its final destination at Barwon Heads, they passed a total of twelve resting points (or stations) along the route. Each station centred around an ephemeral art installation, generally in the form of a walking circle. The walking circles were designed to reflect their location and surroundings and to tie in with the over all theme of "air".
In total, over 70 local artists along with hundreds of community members were involved in the construction of these ephemeral artworks. Below is a photo of each installation or a feature of it:
