I am working on a series of ongoing projects.

The ARM ART PROJECT

The ARM project (Asylum-Relocation-Migration) where I am interested in re-establishing something of a past in the form of a house.  A home is destroyed by natural or manmade forces.  They are lost in memory and often by vast distances as the people that lived there needed to find a new place to live.  Wars cause the extreme destruction of peoples homes and lives. Around the planet the weather wreaks havoc through fires, floods, earthquakes, cyclones and droughts.   Homes are demolished to build new developments or highways. Australia has strict migration laws and its view on asylum are exclusive.

My concept revolves around re-establishing small remnants from anywhere where a home/homes have been destroyed into symbolic new homes or cast concrete here in Bunbury.  People from anywhere are invited to send any materials used in the structure or interiors of houses as large or small as they wish. Rubble, tiles, timber, upholstery/furnishings, roofing, plastics; anything that is affordable for sender to post.  An accompanied story is encouraged.  Contact me for any further information.
