If the recurrence of birds and animals in the earlier works reflected something about Thauberger's preferences, these later works, treating individual places or themes from a particular point of view:   farm buildings seen from the angle of a child playing out back, houses in Moose Jaw, buildings with local glamour (Danceland) and immense animals seen as emblems of farm life (Grandfather's Painting) – but also as signs marking a particular place.
