Fell is a continued investigation into understanding the shifting history of industry in regional New South Wales. Moving beyond the surfaces and facades of the forestry industry, yet still existing within a small area of the south-western mountains known as the Tumut Shire, Fell ultimately explores the struggle between trusting tradition and pursuing progress. Piecing together where these ideas intersect, overlap and crash together, Fell exemplifies the dangers of believing neither in the future nor the past, but rather remaining hopeful about the stasis of the present.
