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 Victorian bushfire-affected sites.
This work was produced by recapturing the screen image using a digital device via the filter of an optical lens. It re-perceives and refocuses the pictures of these digitally monitored, bush-fire damaged sites through the traditional animal-watching device of binoculars to generate constantly moving and evolving circles of light that traverse the screen like cellular forms. Referencing the Fibonacci sequence as the pattern by which new cells are introduced, the site is repopulated with a new and mutated generation.
