Abstract

Make seven walks up from my home to places where there are illegally dumped cars in the escarpment bush. On each occasion, cut out a square section of a car with an angle grinder and carry the piece home.

This scheme provides the basis for a work that responds to the impure complexity of the local illawarra environment. The aim is not only to intervene, in a small way, within sites of vandalism, but also to descend down into the space where car and forest meet. The work takes shape partly as a set of sculptural samples and absences, and partly as field of action - walking, cutting, image-making and writing.
