Description of artwork Located Act 2, 914mm x 2000 mm, photographic print on canvas This photographic work is part of a series visually researching and exploring states of the in-between framed within the practice of landscape photography in a post-colonial framework. In Located Act 2, soft light, crisp mountain horizon lines emerge and the dawn appear as actions, or components forming a dawn morning. Properties of positive and negative light roll over the distance and a blue hue intricately illuminates the scene. Here, time is still in stasis as the space between. Dawn and its associated routine, action and inaction are hinted at as falsities observed by many. This is Act 2 of the ongoing exploration of liminality, the space in-between which are grafted together as actions performing as deceptions in a play for memory and the recollection of past events. Recall and decay of memory is centralised in this work and explored through these tenuous links between the foreground and background elements. Time is key to this series and hints at a physical link to the real, the systems and structures of daily patterns. The size of the work as a large unframed print on canvas, actively seeks a physical engagement with the audience via a centrality of vision. The artwork hangs a metre out from the wall and the work sways in the breeze, to ensure the audience is located at a site for the production of meaning and this captures a mixed reality, between artwork, vision, audience and experience. This is achieved to engage with the multi-sequential narratives surrounding perception and memories visually and theoretically traversed throughout the series. This is part of the ongoing exploration of states of the in-between and is act 2 in a series of 7 artworks. The work is exhibited in the Yarra Ranges, because the work explores the narrative of the decay of memory experienced in this location. Exhibiting here allows a cyclic dialogue with notions of place, home, longing and loss.
