My work This is Spiritual and Physical is showing at Seventh Gallery in Melbourne, through to 15 April 2016. Thank you to Kate Clark for her work on the soundscape.
This is Spiritual and Physical presents video shot in Scotland and Iceland over several years that documents farming and rural life and sites of pilgrimage. The imagery explores the physical and aesthetic characteristics of landscape use for work and that which is visited for its spiritual significance, and aims to elucidate the correspondence between the output of the work generated by a body performing repetitive labour and that generated by spiritual pilgrimage.

These images were taken in Mývatn (which is a shallow eutrophic lake situated in an area of active volcanism in the north of Iceland). Specifically they were taken near the very small town of Reykjahlíð, where there are volcanic outdoor pools and baths. The water in the images is warm. The little islands are volcanic rock, the whole place is dark and silent and misty. I felt very outside myself here.
Then Kim reminded me of Laurie Spiegel and her work, Voices Within… the murmurs, (desires) of machines we have made, calling signs, the sound of process and function. I feel this is perfect music for these images.
