1. Caution, workers below (Termite Ouija Board) takes the form of a modified ouija board, designed to communicate with the world of termites. It was part of Love Letters to Other Worlds (7 April 2016, an evening of art, waste and invisible others) for the Hacking the Anthropocene symposium.
    In an era of uncertainty about action in the face of complex and dispersed environmental problems, the Anthropocene asks us perhaps to _infiltrate_ change as much as anything. Participants at this evening of art, conversation, exploration, and digestion were encouraged to show their debt to (un)charismatic others and ask the world of invisible beings about what our common futures might hold.

  2. Can you imagine what an kangaroo might dream? Or a landscape?

    Filmed primarily at Thompson's Lake, Perth, Western Australia, this short looped film was one of two videos in the Anticipatory terrain (capricious dreams) installation commissioned and exhibited at Another Green World, Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo August-October 2017. At one end of the room this loop was playing directly onto a black-painted wall. Darker tones were lost into the twilight and highlights became silvery traces in the darkened space. To the side and closer to the entrance was a shorter loop, Anticipatory terrain (capricious dreams) part 2, played on an iPad screen at 1.3 m high.

  3. Can you imagine what an kangaroo might dream? Or a landscape?

    This short looped film was one of two videos in the Anticipatory terrain (capricious dreams) installation commissioned and exhibited at Another Green World, Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo August-October 2017. The installation was a small black-painted room with stereo speakers and a subwoofer. To the side and close to the entrance was this short loop, played on an iPad screen at 1.3 m high, derived from night footage filmed at Thompson's Lake, Perth, Western Australia. At the other end of the room another loop, Anticipatory terrain (capricious dreams) part 1, was projected directly onto a black-painted wall, evoking the tones of twilight. The green tones of Part 2 were made to match the muted colours of Part 1.
