Research statement This project was selected for inclusion in the Mountain to Mouth Extreme Arts Event undertaken bi-annually across the Greater Geelong region. After considerable consultation with the community of North Geelong, I developed a pop-up intervention in the industrial heartlands at Moorpanyal Park, North Geelong. The project involved significant immersive community engagement and research, given the powerful impact of deindustrialisation on this community. In preparation for the intervention, I conducted workshops with citizens in North Geelong and invited them to participate in the final activation at Moorpanyal Park which formed part of the extreme public procession. Emerging as a circular project, this work was activated to catalyse social connections and other forms of activity in response to rapid social change, deindustrialisation, manufacturing and consumerism. Re-usable elements were made with donated high vis materials left behind by a local factory, which closed due to processes of deindustrialisation in regional Victoria. Communities collected plastic objects no longer valued and place them inside the forms. The items were then re-distributed, flowing back into the community. Additional components continue to be re-cast, up-cycled and/or re-circulated as the project does its work within and across a range of contexts. This event has a large public presence and is visited by thousands of people across the region. It is also documented on a website and is well publicised via local and regional media platforms.
