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.

Y3LLOW SUN BAY RUN, Video, 2018, Single Channel HD, Colour, Sound, 16:9, 8:11 mins.

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.

Y3llow Sun Bay Run, is an experimental video work that questions our constant need to engage with ‘substance-less’ digital content. How do these all-encompassing states of euphoric observation begin to shape our being when not online? The feeling of being consumed by these online platforms and spaces could be likened to participating in a marathon, however I think it is more like being on a bay run, where the people in front are taking up the whole path and walking really slow in front of you.
