Tambourine Bay is both a single channel video installation and an audio visual work for performance. It can be seen and heard as a window into the wild weather experienced in an inner city suburb of Sydney from the 10th to the 26th of January 2012 and represents a transition or dramatic shift in the climate over a 16 day period. Additional audio and text combine with this to reflect on more severe weather patterns across the east and west coast of Australia leading up to the Australia day long weekend.

I am giving an artist talk and exhibiting 'Tambourine Bay' in the Ear to Earth sound venue as part of the Balance-Unbalance International Conference at the Central Queensland University, Noosa.
The conference takes place from Friday the 31st of May to Sunday the 2nd of June. Information on their website includes the following description, "Balance-Unbalance is an International Conference designed to use art as a catalyst to explore intersections between nature, science, technology and society as we move into an era of both unprecedented ecological threats and transdisciplinary possibilities. The previous events held in Argentina in 2010 and Montreal in 2011 provided a powerful platform for reflection, debate, and ideas leading towards Balance-Unbalance 2013, hosted in the UNESCO Noosa Biosphere Reserve on the Sunshine Coast of Australia."
