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.
This digital print, further explored my personal idenity and connection with locations in Adelaide. But not the time or the reason.
Why does the yellow dot in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens matter? What experiences have you have in the same location?
