[from MCA curator’s notes] The original film was made by [Jim Dale] of Sydney University TV Service. It was then edited by Grounds into a shorter less pedantic version called Dingo Fence. Clips from it were included into Austausch / Exchange.

[Grounds:] The Dingo Fence divides man from nature, circles to do with flora, fauna, sky, fire. Students and architects worked on this, worked with Marr for 7 days, including Imants Tillers and Alec Tzannes who worked for a whole term on this project. [They] worked with what was there. Did not bring any materials with them.
