The acknowledged practice of ephemera, most active since the 1960s, and the unacknowledged omission of practice akin to ephemera, emerging in Australia through culture and shared space over the last two hundred years lead to concepts of no contingency (Buskirk 2003) and no archive (Bond 2005) in visual arts. ‘no contingency’ and ‘no archive’ emerge in the capacity they provide for us to realize that Ephemera exists in the conscious and unconscious development of culture and philosophy. The work investigates ephemeral art, or art that changes, and its potential to question an accepted position, mapping, or status quo. Ephemeral art can disintegrate, instead of holding a position in time, and act as a visual metaphor for art’s intention. It exposes concepts and has the capacity to reposition attitudes through the subversive and inquiring nature of certain work.

Research Statement

Research Background Watersheds and Basins includes an exhibition, catalogue, presented paper and contribution to MDP website. Many artists present their experiences of Australia, to highlight environmental concerns and I use my background/upbringing in n w Queensland to create dialogue about Australia's great underground water basins.
Research Contribution Images were investigated and developed over two years of PhD data collection. They contribute to catalogue, papers and thesis.
Research Significance Art works were reviewed and contribute to perceptions of water usage for people from Townsville and Mildura and beyond. An artist’s talk was delivered in Mildura and extended the meaning of the project.
