‘If I wanted stillness, I’d build a bungalow,’ writes Ella Jeffery in 'Supertall', a poem that envisions life in 432 Park, the world’s tallest residential building. HEAT Series 3 Number 4 explores the tensions between house and home, nature and suburbia, earth and outer space. Clare Murphy uses the language of plants to tell a thorny story of urban development. A series of photographs by Yanni Florence reveal hidden images on city streets. Irish writer David Hayden shares a filmic vision of the Sydney suburbs in his short story ‘Marrickville Light’. Two poets, Ella Skilbeck-Porter and Ella Jeffery contemplate cats and real estate. And Luke Beesley and Amy Leach go further afield, conjuring worlds that sit somewhere between the real and the imaginary.
