Created for Nature in the Dark, a project from Centre for Creative Arts, La Trobe University in collaboration with Parks Victoria. Artists were given access to photographs gathered by scientists and volunteered from motion activated cameras installed to monitor fauna in bush-fire affected sites.
Re-mediated 'nature'. Digitised in the dark and replayed as light. Re-viewed through optical devices and re-digitised. Traversing the plane of the screen and its captured pixel forms. Referencing the Fibonacci sequence as the pattern by which to introduce new forms into the frame, this work progressively builds a co-occupancy of screen-space. We receive a tunneled vision of the elements that occupy these places of scientific investigation - visual documentation of plants and animals cohabiting and restoring themselves to once devastated sites.
Screened at Federation Square, Melbourne from Nov 21 - Dec 23, 2012.
