Blind Tactics

National Works on Paper Prize, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Mornington (20 July – 9 September).

Blind tactics results from a set of experimental processes that responded to questions of material-force relations. It registers impacts and impressions from charcoal projectiles inflecting the surface as an index of intensity. The carbon in the charcoal serves as a common element in all known life, as well as a range of uses from gunpowder to fuel. The residue of collision events recorded in Blind tactics evoke numerous encounters at various scales through which the dynamic movement of matter unfolds.
