The Hut (5/4) wins the Whyalla Art Prize 2017


The Hut (5/4) is an ultra HD cinematic work in 2.5D video projection in 21:9 aspect ratio. It is set in a ‘nowherescape’, a liminal hinterland of collapsible time that is at once bittersweet, life-affirming and deadly. This photo-cinematic project features unique techniques that intimate depth in photography. The work embodies the idea of ‘Elastic Photography’ that sits between the stilled film and the filmic still, reality and illusion, analogue and digital.

The ∞ Infinity version plays randomly generated sequences of all 24 scenes and soundscapes in never-ending unique permutations so that no two experiences of the work are ever the same.

This project includes work created in South Australia, the ACT, the United States and the Outer Hebrides and Shetland Islands of Scotland and artefacts photographed in the Adelaide Civic Collection, The South Australian Museum and the National Museum of Australia.
