  4. Karrajong Heights 2013, 5.43 minutes HD Single Screen

    Karrajong Heights, is a work in response to a trip I made to East Coast Australia earlier this year.

    It examines the almost visceral mutation from day into night, the transition from the repressed energy of the suburban day into the extraordinary patterns and screams of the raw natural environment at night.

    As the heat of the day fades away from this utopian suburbia, lights go on, worlds start to shrink and local media spreads like a virus into homes, relentlessly hawking its message 'the boogie man is real'.

  5. Double Bill, is a playful nonfiction piece and is a document of detritus, focusing on a remote area of the Mojave Desert, California where age-old objects and pieces of art can be found. Its meditative, eerie images reappropriate pieces of detritus through the overlay of audio tracks from 1960/70's adverts turning them into objects of strange beauty. The sight sits in abandonment as the natural world continues on around it, progressing with the flow of time while these pieces of history, each possessing their own individual histories remain rooted in a state of solitude and stasis.
