The Wunder Years

When in doubt we subconsciously fall back on films, books and cultural myths to make sense of the incomprehensible and the arbitrary. We cast ourselves as the protagonists of our own stories, each one a Frankenstein of consumed content, summoned from the muddy banks of memory to help us cope with the complexities of reality. 


In The Wunder Years, I use 8mm film and soundscapes to explore my own narrative, and confront the limitations of using pop culture to forge meaning from chaos.

Winner - Midwest Art Prize Overall Award for Excellence, 2019. 

Acquired by Geraldton Regional Art Gallery

Alternate edition, The Wunder Years (Director's Cut) 1/10, acquired by Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, UWA. 

8mm film - 14:30

The Ship That Never Sank

Being human in contemporary society is intense; our attention is constantly hijacked by new information: the novel and the bizarre, the sad and the hilarious. The Ship That Never Sank explores the lives of two friends who, in the face of such an overwhelming world, experiment with different ways to be.

Created in collaboration with Ellen Broadhurst for the WARP group exhibition, Fremantle Arts Centre, 2017.
