Over the course of my research I made a number of series of artworks that explored the intersection between the body and the environment. The home- the built house and the domestic interior- became a significant framework through which to map this intersection. Presenting these works at the ANU Sculpture Workshop as part of my PhD examination provided me with the opportunity to install these works together. Functioning as another test site, this proxy domestic space honoured the virtual one that illuminated my imagination throughout the research process. I plan to revisit these works and this format- there is unfinished business here that deserves fuller realisation in its own exhibition process.
Bringing the video work “Gaia is Symbiosis as seen from Space” into this installation was again critical to activating the artworks. A sense of this is captured in the video found via this link: https://youtu.be/REWz7kWsOEI
