Patterns we make
"An audiovisual response to Bruny Island looking back to the mainland of Tasmania. Field recording video and music captured in Winter 2019. Field recordings, photos,video and other impressions of Bruny Island, the sombre mood of the soundtrack and video observation of such natural beauty was influenced by my readings of this microcosm of Australia's horrible history of colonisation. The premise of this work is that you have to be somewhere and take a great deal of time and quiet observation to actually know anything of the complete picture of a place and its past present and future. Communication in any form, from spoken word to film, music and visual art, can only impart certain elements or impressions of a place. The basic elements of air, water, sun that power and sustain us all including flora, fauna and human inhabitants, are also a form of communication that needs listening to with full attention and respect.."
