PLACE identity Series
Land Acknowledgement @ Time of Custodian
‘In the spirit of reconciliation the PLACE identity Series acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. I pay my respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.’
Place Statement @ Time of Conception
Is a contemporary visual approach to digitally photographing and montaging the landscape to express the psychological space within a designated place of identity. I continually aim to acknowledge and understand the land we are upon and my personal response of the stimuli that surrounds me with each step taken.
Personal Narrative @ Time of Capture
A fleeting moment…
Within 72 hours of travels the mind became numb, then out of nowhere the turn was taken and the road led to paradise. It was destination unknown until a sign appeared and enlighten me with information. My sensors were ignited and the adrenal flowed quickly as there was little time to consume all the surroundings.
Visual Information @ Time of Creation
The contemporary artwork is a layered narrative reflecting Main Beach natural environment. Main Beach is situated in Nambucca Heads on the Mid North Coast, New South Wales, Australia. On Monday 7th March 2016 I arrived in the afternoon to greet the shoreline and ocean continually photographing my response to nature’s language. In August 2017 post production commenced and one digital montage became Lot 20 in the PLACE identity Series, admiring the fleeting moment as a chance to breathe and rejuvenate.
