Dombrovskis Parks and Wildlife residency at Cradle Mountain (War loun dig er ler), Winter, June/August 2018
Since collaborating with Sara on her Dombrovskis residency at Cradle Mountain, winter, 2016, I believe a connected residency at the same place will offer another perspective on this wet sub-alpine, glaciated landscape. There is much scope for field recording experimentation... the King Billy-pine and shingled roof atmospheres of huts, the shores of tarns on the Plateau region in situ with rain, wind, fog and snow... Much resonant material to explore and work with... (Nigel)
Dombrovskis Parks and Wildlife Residency at Cradle Mountain
(War loun dig er ler), N.W. Tasmania, July-August, 2016
The residency will involve six weeks of solitary exploration and two
weeks of collaboration with Nigel. I anticipate that walking daily for
eight weeks amid snowy alpine terrain will magnify my sensory
encounter of its atmospheric and natural phenomena, opening up new
forms of engagement - visual, aural, tactile, spatial and temporal.
Insights and memories gained on residency will deepen existing
processes behind my making and existing collaborative connections
with Nigel. (Sara). Artist profile (Arts Tasmania Wilderness
