Current experiments and research in combining my identity and cartography.
Where My Tribe?
August 2018. Created for ‘The Connected Thread,’ for Hills Art, Lobethal, SA during The 2018 South Australian Living Artist Festival (SALA).
The exhibitions prose was to explore the connection between textiles and connection. This digital graphic is printed weathered and presented on a plastic woven textile and investigated the human need for connection, though text and cartography. The work explores the story of an unknown person who lives on the edge of the world and the pink unknown, they are desperate for the connection of another yellow dot, but every yellow dot is incredible far, unreachable. A digital connection is inadequate, humans need touch from there tribes.
Digital Print 80x80cm
This work was made for the August 18 SALA Festival. This digital print marks personal, but unknown identity-shaping-experiences within Adelaide. I wanted to demonstrate the frustration I felt from being misunderstood, people knew information about me but didn’t understand me. Here I present important personal locations without the context of time or meaning.
