Shift Beneath, 2014
Toured as part of the annual award exhibition of VCA Honours Graduates, 'Future Now 2014', exhibited through regional Victoria, including Warnammbool, Castlemaine and the Cowwarr Art Space.
This spatial acoustic score was composed from the artist's haunting yet peaceful installation ‘Shift Beneath’; a site-specific appropriation of ‘Shift’ (2013) to the dusty architecture of a decommissioned electrical substation built at the turn of the twentieth century. Whirring around dozens of pulleys, this line coursed throughout the building's one hundred year old brick foundations, typically concealed from the public. Prohibited to venture beneath, viewers physically crouched at a tunnel threshold, experiencing the frenetic yet meditative flux of this rectilinear spatial surveying. At a single point in its journey, the line pierced the boards of the floor above, extending vertically to touch the building's ceiling, then returning to course and rotate beneath the antiquated architectural mass.
