Maria Island 2002

Unpacking our stuff into our new house in Darwin, I found an old CD with a few files on it from 2002. That year I attended an artist in residence program, where about 15 digital artists from Australia, Finland, Norway, Austria.. and a few other places I can't remember, all stayed on Maria Island for a week, composing art pieces to exhibit back in Hobart the following week. The program was called Solar Circuit, and the theme was Wilderness. These clips were for looping in an audio visual performance I put on inside an old wheat silo on the island one night. And this one was more focused on the first contacts between Indigenous and Settler Tasmanians
