About this work

What Possessed You?

An artwork made for Noted Experimantal Writers' Festival, Canberra, 2015.

In response to a proposal to make an artist book and installation of collages and found text, broadly along the theme of 'possession', I was given a brief to make a 'digital zine'.

Whether such a thing can actually exist I still do not know, but this is what I came up with: a series of animated collages and found text installed across a number of social media platforms and blogs, connected to one another through hyperlinks in a choose-your-own-adventure style.

If you locate all three YouTube videos (which riff on the theme of finding Home: 'Someday there'll be a place for us'; 'Somewhere a place for us'; 'Somewhere over the rainbow') you know you've seen the entire work, which can be viewed in its original form here.
