2012 - 2018 > Future Light in the Black Suite

The hedonism of contemporary life depicted as the drive through meal and the four litre cask disguised as something more luxurious. Our attention is diverted from industry’s insatiable hunger which will push us as a society ever forward in search for new resources, which will one day be just out of reach and outside of comfort.

The halo is a discarded remnant of industry, made from Athrotaxis Selaginoides (commonly known as King Billy pine), an endemic Tasmanian tree species. Once abundant, it is now listed as vulnerable and has declined 40% over the last 200 years.
