Dust Landscapes

Dust Landscapes records dust collected from ConFest; a festival held by an alternative healing and spiritual community in the arid landscape of southwest New South Wales, Australia. Extracted dust particles from the site are brought back into the studio and photographed through various processes to create unfamiliar topographical maps. The dustlandscapes represent the disorientating, surrendering, transformative and energising qualities of the festival. This work is part of an ongoing exploration into the influences of healing and related phenomena in communities within natural environments.
