synapse

synapse is a woven 9.4 x 3.64 metre sculpture suspended by 5 tethers in the atrium of Ngoolark building 34, ECU Campus Joondalup. It is lit by digital projection in collaboration with Sohan Hayes [CIA studios]. The theme of synapse is crossdisciplinarity with a visual manifestation of neural pathways and connections with light paths generated from data derived from the University Library.

The artwork is a collaboration between the sculptor and the media artist working in conjunction with the project team led by Libby Guj [jcy].

In Greek mythology, Proteus had the power to know but would assume different shapes to evade giving out answers. The Proteaceae family contains the Banksia and Hakea genus and is named after this idea of changing shape [protean], since the leaf forms differ between juvenile and mature.

The artwork presents a changing Proteus to capture the nature of knowledge and the work of the Science Centre: A solid pod with glass lenses, a wire frame of woven stainless steel and a form made of mist. The diverse pieces are set out on that section of the phylogeny chart that maps the Proteaceae family. The chart is inlayed in the Marri floor and extends out into the courtyard to the mist piece.

For the visitor, the artwork encourages investigation and to experience the feeling of discovery when the story of Proteus, the interrelationship between the objects and the phylogeny chart is revealed. For the occupants the artwork places Proteus in residence – someone who knows that in an unknown state the known is within and for you to expect discovery.

wedge night

 

The Indian Ocean Drive opened in September 2010 and with it, it opened the wedge settlement to the observer effect – which refers to changes that observation will make on the phenomenon being observed. These images are a survey of shacks and the environment of the unique wedge habitat. The wedge night images were shot during one full and two blue moons in the winter of 2012.

kensington night

Just like in Proof – a black comedy about a blind man who takes photographs in Jocelyn Moorhouse’s 1991 debut feature – these
photographs are taken blind in the dark.

The camera sees in the dark and reveals the universe of a suburb of Perth, Western Australia.

rottnest night

 

The supermoon [ lunar perigee or perigee syzygy moon ] occurs once every 412 days, or so, when its orbit brings it closest to the earth [ 356,953 km ]. When it coincides with

a full moon it is called a super perigee moon. On 5 may 2012 we shot rottnest with a 14% larger and 30% brighter moon.
