Australia is built up of multiple regions, each possessing their own character, these characteristics often making a place unique in comparison to others. The still image of squished bugs on an illuminated acrylic screen is the result of the Work’s frame being strapped to the front of a car that then driven from one place to another. Through the journey bugs are gathered through impacting and adhering to acrylic face of the work, once collected they are set in resin, preserving them within the frame.
In this work the eclectic ecology of bugs in Australia are on show, all from different times and places yet all ending up in the same place. A glimpse of what Australia is through an action many Australian can relate to.
