Sense of Place
I started with a location for this project, a place that is so close to my home but feels like another world away. The location became the foundation for my outcome, that being the Dandenong Ranges.
I was reflecting upon my approach as a designer. When I’m up on those mountains, I look at the world around me in awe and overlay my imagination onto the landscape. I can see my imagination as an extension of the world. As I walked around, I filmed sights of perceived beauty and manipulated the footage to communicate my experiences.
The vivid and unnatural colours draw attention to the beautiful details and movement of nature that otherwise go unoticed to the 2019 human. The outcome was a series of cinemagraphs, playing infinitely just as the environment brought me infinite beauty
