'Mining the Mind: Material Memory' installation

'Mining the Mind: Material Memory', Flinders Medical Center, SA 2015

Sound and moving images of energy are combined with the physicality of sand, salt, graphite and carbon in five elemental works that can trigger associations and evoke personal connections.

The works each create a space for the individual where the real, the remembered and the imagined can merge.

They allow the reconciliation of opposing parts of human experience: the rational and irrational, the conscious and unconscious, reality and dream.

The viewer becomes the centre of experience and the creator of meaning.
