Journey: Beachmere integrates digital still and moving imagery to represent the experience of tidal flow on a coastal Moreton Bay foreshore. Beachmeres’ foreshore during the tidal change is a rich tableau of soldier crabs, ribbons of water caught between the layers of rippled sand and short choppy waves whipped up by the wind.
This work defines a moment experimenting with adding two different perspectives (lateral and aerial) to a linear, stop frame animation sequence.
The studio window has views to the backyard. It also is square, thus providing an unusual and ever changing portal to the grass, sky and houses that surround my yard. As I work, the open window lets in breeze and light or denies them as it shuts. This work plays with open and shut and how two different views to the backyard can combine to provide a unique experience of a day in my studio.
It was exhibited in the Dare to do Square show at Pine Rivers Gallery. (https://www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/general.aspx?id=8589935297)
