Artefacts IRL
Stockroom, Kyneton

This body of work began as an exercise in documenting the movement of athletes and dancers on Youtube. The translation was unapologetically analogue– a darkened room, a piece of copy paper placed over a laptop screen, the motion traced with a black pen as the video played. Through this process, a visual language developed and has gone on to inform a number of interventions and performances including the movement and documentation of 25 striped surveying poles in and around various archaeological sites in Spain and Portugal.

Artefacts IRL is an extension on these investigations through drawings, sculpture and installation. In terms of process and as a collection of artefacts, these works probe the relationship between image and object, virtual and physical space and digital technology as coextensive to nature.
