Rose Tinted is part of an ongoing project attempting to highlight binary constructs of the screen in the context of the queer male. A slow paced pan across a pink landscape reinterprets sexuality and masculinity on the screen by exploring the possibility for in-between. Rose Tinted engages with and shifts the binaries of masculinity and queerness by presenting a fragmented experience of the landscape and identity. The single channel video shows the landscape in-between the binary structures of masculinity and homosexuality, relying on stereotypical readings of both homosexuality and the Australian landscape. Reflecting a personal dislocation from the normative structures of queer sexuality sensitively operating between boundaries of typical masculinity and sexuality.

FELTdark is viewable: Wed - Sat: 7pm - 12am

Featuring durational performance within isolated urban environments in the Adelaide sphere, The Violet Hour catalyses as a site-specific video installation investigating the (un)natural and supranatural forces of the local area. Where the surrounding and pervading invisible is made visible through embodiment. FELTspace features and becomes a liminal point of entry — an epicentre where these energies and metaphysical aspects intersect as well as manifest through spatial engagement.
