Meniscus (Murchison Gorge)
2010, video projection, 1920 x 4480 (4.5K), 22 minutes, no sound.

A single, linear tracking shot in which the rotated lens, situated at water level and allowing a field of view extending above and below water, 'scans' the remote, pristine, old growth environment along a bank of the gorge river. This 'widescreen' cinematic piece is then presented vertically. The meniscus is revealed as a dividing line, quivering in abstraction between reflections of the rare flora above and the darkness below.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
