artists statement

Reflecting on 50 years of telephone use in Australian drama, and a moment of scientific investigation.

Hellos, goodbyes, grunts, silences, answering, hanging up, questions, demands, sympathy, enquiry, deceit, disappointment, excitement.

By removing the message or narrative what remains is a collection of actions, movements and the ubiquitous telephone; grey, black, white, cream, blue, round, square, dials, press pad, ringing, pulsing or beeping tones.

At the centre of this project is reflection, sited in a place of solitude-a place for dreaming. Mobile and immobile, conversations bracketed by selected connectionsand disconnections.
