seven

Ballarat International Foto Biennale 2011

B1 Ballarat Art Space

seven is a collaboration with my son, Joss. I asked Joss to freely draw on a large roll of paper whatever came into his head. His black inked lines are meandering story of planes, rockets, lava eating monsters and stricken stick figures. At seven years old, I was fascinated with his inventive mind and childlike enthusiasm. This drawing become the background of a life-size portrait of Joss. Printed onto two sheets of acrylic they stood freely in the middle of a small darkened space.
