Default messages constructed with reference to the following passage by Beatrice Warde to be trasmitted across an 11 panel LED canvas: … a printing office…crossroads of civilization…refuge of all the arts… against the ravages of time… armoury of fearless truth…against whispering rumour… incessant trumpet of trade from this place words may fly abroad…not to perish on waves of sound…not to vary with the writer’s hand…but fixed in the having been verified in proof…friend you stand on sacred ground…
Fragments of this quote above scroll across the LED canvas 4 times every hour. The passage will never read as a whole but if the public tune in repeatedly they will be able to assemble and decode the message.
These fragments will be varied in their speed, length and their abstraction, ensuring the work has longevity and attraction for repeated viewing, the text itself is limited but the variation and animated effects will provide a visual that provides longterm interest for an audience.
Work in progress, to be completed in 2013

Last Word 2012 is the third and final performance series for Siteworks. Robyn Backen and the PLANK will return and present a river fugue or a collage of voices transmitted then received— beside, around and across the Shoalhaven tidal zone.
The work is inspired by research undertaken while on residence at Bundanon. In the 1880’s the farmer Thomas Biddulph of Eeree (Earie Park) wrote in his diary, each entry starting with a simple weather report. These diaries are the inspiration for a light and sound work which will take place at dusk.
The PLANK: Michelle Xen, Ian Hobbs, Annemaree Dalziel, Neil Mackenzie and Chris Zinn.
