Old Growth (Murchison Gorge)
2010, video projection, 1920x4480, 22 minutes, no sound (excerpt).

A single, linear tracking shot in which the camera, situated at water level and rotated to extend the field of view above and below water, 'scans' the remote, pristine, old growth environment along a bank of the gorge river. Reflections quiver in abstraction between the rare flora above and the darkness below. This 'widescreen' cinematic piece is then presented vertically.

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