Cycles of Drought
Pitch Festival commissioned a video work for their 2019 festival set outside Ararat in the Grampians, Victoria. My video depicts nine moments in a drought. Twisting landscapes reduce to carbonised particles as water washes endlessly over digital granite and pixelated fires burn in an infinite loop.
Ten large format high resolution LED screens arranged back to back as 5 totems were installed on site creating a space for people to move amongst the glowing panels. When approached from a distance towards the main stage the work appears as a single surface. My work was formatted as a wide moving collage across the panels.
I coordinated six other international video artists to make works for the festival to ensure visual arts were represented alongside the broadly international music program. Joe Hamilton, Lucy Benson, Michael Tan, Ezra Miller, Tristan Jalleh and Andreas Nicolas Fischer each made site specific works displayed across the 4 days of the festival.
This work is available for purchase and screening.
