 I acknowledge and pay my respects to the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation and the Dharug peoples, who are the traditional custodians of the land on which I was raised and continue to work. I pay my respect to elders past, present and emerging.

PROJECT $PORTBOOT IS NOT FOR SALE, 2017

This series of video work is an expression of youth culture and online identities in the digital age. Drawn from personal experience and pop-culture references, these absurd re-enactments of contemporary slang and the mass influx of influencer ‘content creation’ is presented through direct interactions with the camera and an oversaturation of visual aesthetics.

Project $portboot is Not for Sale draws on the foundations of contemporary music videos and the ever encroaching pursuit of constant advertising in our daily lives. The participants were provided with prompts from the artist to then improvise repetitive actions and behaviours between selected objects and the camera, resulting in a surreal branding loop.
