Product details

Seahorses explores the activity of the indigenous seahorses that live in Port Phillip Bay, that are at threat from dredging. These gentle, almost otherworldly sea creatures are territorial, and they cluster around their familiar localities such as inlets and piers, moving in and out of the native seagrasses.

Dredge is a collection of three works for percussion quartet that were composed as part of a collaborative work with photographer Siri Hayes. It consists of music, photography, photograms, a lightbox, video with both live and pre-recorded music. Issues arising from dredging in Port Phillip and Westernport Bays, Victoria, Australia, were used as metaphors for the layering of texture, substance and narrative with an aquatic focus. Ecologically sensitive areas of dredging, such as the risk to aquatic life , were explored concurrently with issues of rising sea levels.
