Shell Game is a personal model for divination about the future. Placing you into the centre of the Spratly Islands, an international flashpoint where international shipping, mango exports and the odd K-Pop star have been caught up in the maelstrom.
Is this for me? For those who seek safety and surety in an uncertain world.

Take a backseat ride through the Australian landscape as you become an extra on a film set. The Ride casts a cynical eye over the war on terror, subverting the power of the patriarchy in a playfully deviant way.
Is this for me? For those not afraid to role play in front of the camera.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

Relax into this sonic encounter braiding political, poetic and power laden rap. Tresse // Passing is a personal narrative exploring culture down to the root. The Blak Matriarchy is alive and well.
Is this for me? A raw, multi-sensory environment. Contains some coarse language.
