In the middle of the rain forest is an investigation around the invention of Australia, or the concept of Australia.

I spent a month in the ragion of the New South Wales, the most coveted and densely populated Australian ragion. The feeling I had was that I was immersed in a sort of Truman Show, where the perfection that we perceive is just the first and thin layer of a more complex story.
