Southern Midlands // Tasmania
Southern Midlands Tasmania project explores the relationship between the built and rural landscape of the Southern Midlands. This includes how the European settlers brought with them ideals and values that is evident in the colonial architecture as well as influencing the rural landscape of the Southern Midlands. This project aims to explore how history can shape how a place is both imagined and realised, juxtaposed with contemporary reality. Through these concepts I aim to explore how the towns and landscapes in and around the Southern Midlands have evolved and changed over time. Over a 6 week period in 2017/18 I undertook the Southern Midlands Tasmania project. I was successful in undertaking the Artist-in Residence program through the Southern Midlands Council and thank them for their support in providing me the opportunity to experience and practice my craft in in this beautiful region.
