Wrapped

I hung sixty metres of silver polyester fabric and covered a floor with fluoro sticky paper  to create an installation in a small enclosed space as a trial for studio practice.

I am interested in corrupting spatial boundaries , exploring materiality and finding a use for discarded fabrics or commercially unviable materials.

I also use films I have made to create projections onto the surface of the materials to explore and develop an investigation of colour and light.

Orange Rain

I completed studio practice in 2018 with a performance of 3600 pieces of hand cut orange tracing paper falling in the internal stairwell of Building D at Monash University , Caulfield.

It signified the amount of time I had spent working on studio practice whilst completing my Bachelor of Fine Art Degree.

The paper was placed in four black buckets and flung from various elevation points within the space.

It was a joyous, embracive  and exhilarating work celebrating the support I had received, and the strength through knowledge I now have to embark on my own artistic journey.
