As we head towards Cockatoo Island, here is a little reading to get you thinking about the particular qualities of the site that you’ll be interrogating with your group in Assignment 2.

First – an excellent article in Cabinet magazine about islands – as a ‘natural geographical model for the classic territorial conception of a state’.

Next, a special issue of Runway magazine, a local online journal, collecting together visual and text-based work related to the theme of islands.

And lastly, a curious online journal all about islands. That’s right… every issue. It’s called The Island Review.
