Recent experiences volunteering with Australian Wildlife Conservancy scientists at Scotia Sanctuary NSW and working with Dr John Read (University of Adelaide) left me very aware of how poorly wild Australia is being treated….just a part of planet Earth’s current extinction crisis. Cardboard boxes used for imports is my chosen medium, a material sourced from living trees, the home of many species and the lungs of our planet. This work is part of an ongoing online video project at
Time has taught me art making is a game where method and material combinations sometimes gel and become something entirely new. This can induce a real high, but art making is not really about how to make but what to make. I can only repeat Bertolt Brecht…. ‘They won’t say; the times were dark. Rather; why were their poets silent?’
