‘nineWONDERS’

‘nineWONDERS’ engages conceptually with refiguring cultural topographies of landscape genres. The work connects isolated global desert meteor and volcanic crater sites that bear witness to ‘inverted’ nocturnal landscapes and cultures enacted and impacted upon. The work explores and revisions the panoramic field of view and reiterates the collapse of the spectators point of view as one of dislocation and nocturnal conjuring, equivalent to the aesthetic evocation of shadows and apprehensions of estrangement. ‘nineWONDERS’ conceptually evokes and provokes a deterritorialised place, a cinematic echo of familiarity, yet ominously unfamiliar. The work comprises terrestrial and geographic topography of impact and conflict.

world of visible shadows

‘nineWONDERS–was undertaken on the full moon throughout 2009 at nine global desert meteor and volcanic crater sites that bear witness to an ‘inverted’ landscape enacted and impacted upon. The work shifts both perceptual and topographical representations of the ‘defamiliarised’ site or place and provokes questions of an evacuated narrative that has the potential to form an alternative documentary epistemology.

‘nineWONDERS–revisions the panoramic field of view and reiterates the collapse of the spectators point of view as one of dislocation and nocturnal conjuring, equivalent to the aesthetic evocation of shadows and apprehensions of estrangement. The pure light rendered within the photographic image, of nocturnal full moon illumination, is intended to evocatively create and evoke a deterritorialized place, a cinematic echo of familiarity, yet ominously unfamiliar.

‘nineWONDERS–nine seemingly disparate, yet nocturnally familiar impact site locations: Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Hawaii (USA), California (U.S.A.), Libya, Syria, Israel and Egypt.
