I have a new video work LAYOFTHELAND installed in the NewActon Art Box. The work was developed for the Art, Not Apart festival which took place on the 17th of March, and will run 24/7 for the next month. 

'LAYOFTHELAND is a vibrant, dynamic video work that employs drone footage to transform the surface of the land into a giant flatbed scanner. Stitching together different textures and locations, the video provides a unique visualisation of the landscape data that surrounds us. Lay of the Land provokes questions around how we perceive/interact with the landscapes, and how human development effects and changes them.'

I don’t read books. Of course I have read a handful, and own more than I can count, but I would never describe myself as a ‘big reader’ or a ‘booklover’. Encyclopaedias in particular have always been a complete mystery to me. Thankfully the tide has turned, and what were once a symbol of intelligence, wealth, and status have now become practically worthless – old dusty relics full of old information presented in an old way. Booksmart is an installation of over 100 Encyclopaedias and reference guides presented alongside a video piece. It celebrates the death of this old, static way of storing and accessing knowledge, and the birth of a new dynamic and democratic vehicle for information that often requires more of the reader.

Booksmart opens on the 30th of March 2017 at the Canberra Contemporary Art Space Manuka.
