In Passing investigates temporal relationships and the way in which the future turns into the present. The camera moves swiftly through a range of landscapes, with the motif of the bird used as a placeholder for the human conscience as it makes this journey. My body of work also deals with the tension between rural and urban environments, an issue that is currently relevant as drought devastates large portions of rural NSW. Through the interpolation of these two starkly different landscapes, intercut by the motif of the bird, the work aims to draw the two groups together.
