Live performance and video instillation

Broken Hill Australia, Desert equinox (Earth) 2016


This work looks at the newly complex relationship between human and our natural environment. It explores ones draw to the land, in particular, the red desert, the ocean sands, the mountain grounds and the rocky seas. My degradation of connection with land is explored through the thorough shining of black boots in each landscape. As polish covers my boots so to does the eager landscape rather its salty water, red dirt or sandy ground, making my routine exhausting. I aim to bring my attention to the importance of presence in our lands, the destruction that follows life times of distraction and the beauty of our home, Australia. 

Location: Country NSW, Victoria and Northern Territory.
