The folds and tones of the latest 2019 Australian Election resulted in a win for the Morrison right wing conservative government. Refugees in concentration camps despaired, but until I heard this speech I did not understand that this conservative government could not go to the electorate on an anti refugee platform. They even tried to take credit for children out of the camps. It’s not only the beg things but the very important underlying things we should look at.
Shattered – Exhibition Red Gallery beginning 3 September 2015 Opening 6-8
A spectre is haunting…
The protest s filmed through the glass bottle, light shatters through the medium of the bottle/glass. The bottle catches either just light, or the image of the people moving through glass, a medium already scientifically interesting as a liquid which feels solid, but is sand. The projection is then captured on the wall the people protesting moving, but stopped at this time of austerity. Will the bottle let its contents go? Or create shards that can split time? These specters of time past in time present are an indication that time present will be time past. It is humanity’s actions that will shape the final storyboard, and it can be a positive one of meeting human need. The questions of time/temporality and the consequence of being caught in a difficult time – austerity, war, dictatorship – are raised.
