In Terra Conductor, sculpture, the moving image and photographic works manifest focal points in two and three dimensional space, drawing our attention to the axis of the horizontal and vertical, both within landscape and the gallery, in lines marked out in bronze, photographic emulsion or moving images.
In the video work Lowest Point, Kati Thanda (Belt Bay), shot at the lowest point in Australia, we see a shimmering close-up of a salt-lake with a mirage in the distance, and in the work Wrap, a spider repetitively loops a cocoon of silk around its prey. The sculptures, Terra Conductors, are a collection of bronze, tripod-like structures with elongated uprights made from cast bronze rods. These works consider an axis point between physical and psychological space. The series Bronze Photograms use the sculptures to conduct light onto paper. The resulting unique photographic images are in focus only at the point where the form of a Terra Conductor and light strike the paper together: the upright of the sculpture creating a ghostly white shadow on the deepest black of emulsion. All these works consider the intersection of “site” and “sight”, two concepts that further inform the artist’s practice.
