Eventuating out of a childhood obsession, the art of origami has formed the basis of my recent studio explorations. Marking a shift away from pure formalism, the final twelve week project, entitled ‘Little Boy’, reflected upon a past school trip to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. Google map imagery of the bombsite, in its current state, was screen-printed and folded in to small, palm-sized objects.

Filmed in the drummer’s bedroom, ‘The Gift’ combines elements of film noir with psychological horror imagery. It is the debut music video for Melbourne band, The Primary.
