Working the Waters

Mudgee Arts Precinct Market St, Mudgee, NSW

Working the Waters takes its cue from the multiple modes of human engagement with the waters on the planet.  With an emphasis on the folly and resultant disasters of human psychology Working the Waters combines installation and immersive video to explore the liminal zone of the pedosphere where human action and water meet.
