Land Work Commission Changes it all

Exploring the backroads of South Gap Station (with permission)

The last few years have included some huge changes. Leaving society and shedding the external expectations, the possibilities seemed endless.
Where was I going to go and what would I create?

I got a call from the Yellaka Dance Group to create a commissioned Land Work. Having played around with lights and some portrait work it made sense to tackle this similarly, treating the landscape as a person.

On the Woomera Road on the way to Pimba, a dusty track led me to South Gap where I drove into the scrub looking for points of interest. After digging twelve fire pits and installing some simple lighting I began to create.

Little did I know this moment would have a similar effect to the Kanku Breakaways trip. This work gave my new journey direction while adding a new sense of purpose. What I didn’t realize at the time was the amount of perceived control this process instilled within me.
