“In my art practice I explore the photographic recording of extreme sunlight. My ongoing fascination involves the transformation of these abstract photographic techniques I have used for over ten years, such as camera movement and slow shutter speed, most recently into the medium of video. In the video Place (2005) I use a montage of multiple fragments to express a coexistence of time, past and present, and to evoke a deep sense of spirituality that echoes and pulsates from within the flooded river, rocky cliffs and foliage that feature in the majestic landscape of the Cataract Gorge, nestled so closely to the town of Launceston in Northern Tasmania.”
