Our epidermis is a semi-permeable boundary. Our bodies expand and retract beyond this border. Skin cells reduced to dust are still a part of me. My work explores the nature of our bodies in relation to fluidly exchange influence with our surroundings – stretching and shrinking. Our corporeal self is fragmented by data. This computerised detritus is an organ of our bodies, extended beyond our reach. Information is scraped from our anatomy, recording personal idiosyncrasies and complex emotional states. These splinters of the body are exploited behind an opaque screen, and used to monetise us, to manipulate us and to reinforce marginalisation.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the Boonwurrung and Woiwurrung people of the Kulin Nations, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
