With my work I aim to allude to human influences on Australia’s natural environment and the prospect of impending change. Small signs of human intervention often herald the beginning of larger changes that negatively impact on the ecological system. The small and secret paths of our childhood wilderness have been traded for dirt roads, bitumen and housing developments. Since European settlement, hundreds of species have gone extinct and it is likely that many more species will follow in the near future. My images and video recordings allow the viewer to pause and consider whether these places and their inhabitants will be the next to disappear.
