WEST OF EDEN

West Of Eden is the result of an artistic residency at the Western Treatment Plant (WTP) that took place over three months in 2015. The residency set out to open the minds of the broader community and challenge some of its perceptions of the WTP.  As an artist, Bindi Cole Chocka had access to a normally quarantined area larger that Malta.  Chocka was completely taken by the wealth of inspiration that exists at the WTP, from the industrial and natural vistas to the unique and world-class wetlands.  As a result, Chocka created new photographic and video works that both highlight the natural beauty of the WTP while embracing the fact that, in many ways, this land is not natural at all.  West of Eden presents a world that may or may not exist but could be a type of Eden, a perfect place to live between worlds.
