Collider is a video site response work that investigates the physical and conceptual notions of landscape as matter and phenomena.
Using video sequences, this work places the Bundoora Homestead site within a shifting scale of material territories, molecular energies and entropic disorder. Collider includes both abstracted and live video sequences shot throughout the Homestead grounds and across the Bundoora Park and Mt Cooper area that appear to be capturing unknown, signalling phenomena. The work depicts time, space and place where the idea of a site is viewed as both poetic and quantum. Locations float and revolve with a sense of shifting dimensionality, containing endless physical potential, objects transmitting or receiving signals of unknown significance, referencing terrestrial/extra-terrestrial landscapes and mindscapes. Space felt rather than understood.
