Absent Presence, 2014
Interactive projection, public art commission Townsville
Absent Presence references the traces we may leave as individuals in the world around us. Whether this is the imprint we have on the environment or the history that’s embedded into out lived spaces and architecture.
I am interested in what is absent and what is present with an aim that the viewer considers these ideas. Using interactive technology the work allows the viewer to be part of its creation by projecting their own shadow in realtime and also being surrounded by ‘ghost shadows’ of past people inhabiting the space.
