Night Journeys

Stephen McLaughlan Gallery, Melbourne 2004

These works together reference the art and science of the journey. Fundamental to way-finding and determining our location is our reliance on the processes of star-finding and more recently satellite technology. This enables navigation and mapping, movement and communication. The installation emphasizes the abstracted nature and resonance between various navigational models, the activity of light, and networks and data, (sometimes beyond visibility and the full range of the senses), which have developed over time and in different cultures. A sound installation created with sound producer David Rogers, was part of this exhibition. This included recordings I had made of waves against the hull of a moving yacht blended with electronic sounds in random short bites superimposed over longer pulses.
