in medius res
Seven Thousand Oaks Festival, Melbourne City Square, 2010
‘In medius res’ was a site-responsive installation to Melbourne’s City Square as part of the Seven Thousand Oaks festival, exploring issues of sustainability. With the artist's predilection for immersive environments, the challenge was how to transform the atmosphere of a public arena, altering perceptions of space and place. Intuitively referencing the subterranean, this work anchored awareness towards our primordial foundations and what lays hidden beneath. Buried in the sand lay two hundred meters of tubing with six hundred outlets. Haze periodically and surreptitiously emanated, immersing the unsuspecting public, before wrapping the city skyscrapers.
