The places between us. Or we’re all in the plantation. (Detail, wip) The indentations we carry in our bodies, our lived experiences. The growth and environmental marks in hoop ply. The aliveness of bacterial/fermented plant inks. All reflected back to us. Sanded and drawn back in to. Drawing with machines, with fingers, with arms and body pressings, then weathering it all. The temperature, the rain, the shadows, what was said, the marks we make, post-more-than-humaning-whatever-we-are. Experiments. ⚡️

Image ID: Plant and bacterial inks stained into hoop ply sanded back, and drawn into with bilateral sensorimotor drawing.

Fire stories. Misty lit smoke in flooded burnt Country. I thought I could hold something tenderly in this climate/corporate catastrophe. But had to let go of that good willing whatever... as if I wasn’t living in the human disaster machine. Not separate from plantation razed, flood tangled, fire stripped ground. Rest here human, remember who you are, we’re all going down together, we’ll collapse into each other. ❤️‍🔥 #entropy #wereallgoingdowntogether #firestories #collapsingtogether #ecologicaltransition #illstoptheworldandmeltwithyou #fire #flood #symbiocene #campfirestories

Our mutual affect. Stains left from foraged fermented plant inks and sensorimotor drawing, sanded back on hoop ply with white beech off cuts (off cuts from Ross’s students @ #lomandraplacestudios) 

Thinking about #renewables, #leftovers, #recyclables, #machines and those soldier trees standing to attention in best practice #plantations, and the #communities they cultivate and that fall with their harvesting.. Magnificent entities harbouring so much life, often just chipped and turned into loo paper, def worth a moment’s pause. How we love, who we love. 💚🌲

This is me in my pjs in my lounge this morn. I don’t generally selfie. It’s not my forte, I have a hang up about photos of myself. But it’s my 49th today and I’d like to not give so much of 💩 about that. So this is me. Hi 👋 Def might delete later. Ha. 
I’ve had so much ill health for so long now, and I have struggled to get used to the slippery slide, it makes me extra cranky coz I was really good at pushing through obstacles until I couldn’t anymore. So this selfie is to thank this physical form for pulling me through quite a few impossibilities, and to be grateful for what it is now, despite my grumpy headstrong determination that means I still want to be able to do everything that I can’t 🙄 But I do learn to adapt and do new things within the scope of what this wild and scarred form has given me.

This is how I frame my works now due to ongoing storms and floods, little sleep and no morning tea. ⛈ Wild climate literally bashing tree people.

Bilateral sensorimotor drawing. The interwoven relations around us, languages happening within us, alongside us, only shrugged by our consciousness. All the things speaking with us, moving us, in conversation with us. An inter-species language, that we have an obligation to remember, as one part of a larger culture than our own. #sensorimotordrawing #bilateraldrawing #interspecies #interspeciescommunication #theways #patterns #sensoryreceptors #language #whatmovesus #symbiosis #weatherpatterns #symbiocene #greatersensorybeing #systems #drawing

I’m making drawings for blankets for a sensory body of work for sometime in the future @elevator_ari These multi species calendars, overlap times, and environmental interactions. Mistletoe and me and all our relations caught in the lines of our growth. Quilted stories. A reminder of perspectives, entanglements, and possibilities. One part of it anyway. I hope this fits and helps to keep you warm. #australiannativemistletoe #sensorimotordrawing #calendar #entanglement #possibilities #macrophotography #macro #woodgrain #quilt #blanket #interlocking #tie #bind #weave #patterns #fossilrecord

Rough, but until my machine stops crashing coz I’m blending timelines and messing with the future🔮Here’s a crude calendar of seismic somasenses and wood grain records of entanglement between species and space, both of us marking time and gathering information about our surroundings. A liminal multi species tapestry of affect, a collective history. I need to remember the options. 🪵🪨⏳🎗☝️

Family tree. I think of the ways I am with this place, myself as a layered quilt, the strata I can’t dig too deeply into or it will fall apart. Newbies. I’m more like bones and leaves and dirt piled up precariously. But still, I am more here than anywhere else, and as helixes turn in my blood, I fold myself into this place now. All the previous bodies of harm and heartache are laid down beneath my feet. And I learn to love myself, loving you, and forgive, as the harm is the ground that holds me. Mending and still only just tacked together🪡📌 Pieces of silk printed with commodified bodies and bilateral drawings, coloured with domestic dyes and leaves to an opacity. Sticks of silky oak, and sheoak chattered with machines. All our natures mixed without hierarchy. Backyard tree stump and mistletoe haustoria remnants polished and woven with python bones and twine. These pieces of here, of us, tended to with devotion, will also become ground, that I hope will hold you too.

ID: layers of different coloured and sized  green silk are pieced together. The fabric is printed but you cannot really see the imagery because the colour drowns it out. It is held by a silkyoak carved stick and tacks, it is rectangular as a whole and there are small pieces of carved wood, mistletoe, red gum, sheoak and snake bones threaded together with twine, adoring it.

My body straddles a time when women could and couldn’t speak out about abuse. 

My body is still an anomaly. 

My body has been able to break intergenerational violence because it was born in a window where there were small opportunities that had never been before. 

I still see bodies that can’t speak out, and I still struggle to speak what hasn’t been said for generations. 

To see a ‘first world’ country shut a door that allowed bodies born into intergenerational violence have some access to a different path is devastating. 

These decisions affect all humanity, and for our bodies to deal with traumas our culture creates, we need options. 

To deny a body autonomy is to send violence into the future.
