With interest rates rising, property prices booming, and land plots becoming smaller and smaller, dirt is not cheap. For many Australians, the Aussie Dream of property ownership is becoming a fantasy. David Short digs up this hot topic in his new exhibition Land Inspection Now Open, which questions the ever-increasing commoditisation of dirt.

From 99 suburbs across Melbourne, 99 samples of land have been extracted, valued and individually packaged, and will be up for sale at Seventh Gallery. Building your property portfolio is easy with these miniature plots of land, small enough to fit on your mantle piece.

So call your bank, bring your financial advisor, and get your hands on the most wanted dirt around Melbourne.
