Description of artwork Located Act 3 914mm x 2000 mm, photographic print on canvas . This artwork and the series it resides in is situated within the practice of landscape photography in a post-colonial framework. In Located Act 3 fluid lines, cloud banks and an emerging dawn are composed as fragments within the scene. The blue hue is present and moves the viewer to recall and make links with Acts 1 & 2 of the series. These visual links emerge as a narrative of lines, sequences and colour as signifiers for the progression of memories. Reality is imagined to hint at the everyday, or is it the fictional. The work seeks to disrupt the rhythm of the viewer’s truth in its quest for some vestige of familiarity. Time, contrasts the notion that the artist’s perceptions are not the reality of the other. 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 3 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.
