Description of artwork Located Act 1, 914mm x 2000 mm, photographic print on canvas. This artwork and the series it initiates is situated within the practice of landscape photography in a post-colonial framework. In Located Act 1, the properties of light, time and the natural elements graft together to operate as players in a drama of the real. Reality, a delusion, both pure and imaginary is suggested through the elements of this work. Liminality is an affordance considered as a void in this series, where stasis metaphorically presents a vision for the viewer trapped between in a frozen pre-dawn site. A sensitivity of trace decay is here in these tenuous links between the foreground and background elements. The representation of time, that of pre-dawn suggests a physical link to the real, the systems and structures of daily patterns. Heraclitus notion of all things flowing is suggestion within a particular timeframe, holding many memories, or repetitions and echoes of belonging. 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 memory recall. This is visually and theoretically investigated throughout the collection and is part of the ongoing exploration of states of the in-between and forms the start of a series of 7 artworks. The work is exhibited in the Yarra Ranges, because the work explores an analogy of the decay of memory which was experienced in this location. Exhibiting here allows a cyclic dialogue with notions of place, home, longing and loss to feedback to the community.
