Two works have been selected to tour with those of 18 leading national and international media artists in the Experimenta Make Sense International Triennial of Media Art. Commencing in Melbourne at RMIT Gallery on October 2, 2017, the tour then travels to 9 galleries in the Eastern states of Australia over the next three years. Many of the galleries are regional and it is a great opportunity to show my work to an audience beyond the mainstream gallery-goer.
It’s been a busy few months and a busy 2 weeks still to come with three art projects to complete for two exhibitions. These are all outcomes of my Honours study and the culmination of a year of research into alternative ways of engaging in the climate change discussion. The ‘raising awareness’ approach of past works is not necessarily effective at getting people’s attention and these new projects are focussed on either exploring solutions or looking for ways to promote a reconnection with each other and the planet and to put climate change in the broader context of all the problems we face.
