I would like to acknowledge the Palawa people as the traditional and ongoing custodians of the land where this work was filmed.

SCREEN TIME I

Screen Time I (2020) was created during my first pandemic related lockdown in April 2020. The work is an online space inspired by the classic ‘Calm’ meditations and Aquarium sounds from the Nintendo game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Meditation apps and gaming really helped me make space for myself during that particular lockdown where I felt the confines of the home were not easy to escape from. I was also working on my Masters project during this time and was looking for ways to expand on the work I was making, which is when I started experimenting with digital neon. 

 

You can sit with the work as long or as short as you want, it is intended to be a space online where you don’t really need to think but just be.
