Research interests

Peter Pilven's research interests have recently focussed on the pre and post gold mining era of Ballarat and district. The degradation and transformative effect that the mining industry has had on the topographical and geological landscape, provide ongoing stimulus for the creative output Peter continues through his art practice.
