Carbon Monoxide Apple HQ Federation Square Melbourne
Looking at the structures of meeting places which are crafted to enable meetings and discussions, unruly or otherwise, these drawings start with a printed photograph of an unrealised Apple outlet design in Federation Square Melbourne. Erasing as I draw, I transform reflective photographic surfaces into fleeting, drawn, projected surfaces.
Working with styles ranging from diagrammatic, to those we relate to as art, I visualise our colonisation of earth, including stratosphere and subterranean planet, through changing, variable, fractured, horizons of seamlessly self-contradictory space/surfaces. Erasure implies forgetting and remembering which doesn’t need recording, memory, or direct observation. Playing with parameters of abstraction, scale, and figuration I'm conscious of forces such as migration, capitalism, climate change, impacting lived experience. My work shows a blurring of symbolic and material boundaries.
