THE CROSSING (2019)
Articulate Project Space, Leichhardt.
THE CROSSING began with a journey; travelling by car from Sydney to Perth and sleeping out under the stars at night. Every day I documented the changing landscape as pure colour. Back in Sydney, I made a series of circular images by re-configuring the colour data to resemble the growth rings of a tree. Starting with the first colour recorded in the morning and moving outward as the day progressed, each image calls to mind the colours of the country through which we passed.
There are nine images in the series, one for each day of the journey: Sydney to Taree, Taree to Dubbo, Dubbo to Silverton, Silverton to Melrose, Melrose to Fowlers Bay, Fowlers Bay to Mundrabilla, Mundrabilla to Kalgoorlie, Kalgoorlie to Lake Ballard, Lake Ballard to Perth.
