In my work, I aim to highlight tensions embedded in the Australian narrative through the deconstruction and reconstruction of history and myth. The contradictory ‘white Australia’ myth serves to continually define Australian history and identities, perpetuating ongoing colonial occupation. This continual occupation enshrines a power structure that leaves me and other white Australians in a position of implicit privilege. Through the medium of film, and often using installation, I place together symbols of Australian history with those of either myself or my family, giving space to explore these narratives at both a personal and societal level.
