Hope, they say, perches in the soul. In an uncertain world it’s a valuable commodity, which encourages people to move forward, ask questions, try new things, strive, persevere.

It’s the name of Jenny McCracken’s inspiring piece of artwork which now adorns the Science Exchange in Adelaide, and the front cover of edition 100.

Watch here as McCracken grapples with the commission; prepares the canvas and then brings alive the notion of hope.
