Exploring Hidden Ecologies

Georgia Nowak, Visual Artist in Residence

This project uses the landscape of Broken HiIl as representative of affected and devastated site that contribute to climate change. The abandoned mine sites of Broken Hill are visible scars that highlight the anthropogenic and terraformed landscapes of Australia. The sites will be documented in a film project for exhibition. The footage will combine with archival film and images sourced locally as a mechanism to link historical events to contemporary activity. A non linear approach to story telling will be employed to ensure disparate elements are interwoven, from the micro biology to the macro economy. This project is an ongoing investigation into material histories and the affect of resource extraction on the environment. www.georgianowak.com
