I often ride to work along the Yarra River. There is a small area of parkland, called Loy’s Paddock, between the freeway and the river. I photographed this place from autumn to spring, recording the growth of plants and changing weather. The installation represents my memory and experience of the place over time. Each time it is installed it is a bit different, like the weather.
Sometimes the work installed as pop-up images on the floor. This evokes the topography of the landscape it represents and shares the physical space of the viewer. As the viewer moves around the room the landscape is gradually revealed, perceived, and concealed once more.
