The work draws inspiration from an ongoing fascination with the aesthetics of the industrial sublime, that developed during a series of photographic field trips into the remote, isolated and evocative landscape of Tasmanias central Highlands to investigate the hydro-electric power scheme. I found myself compellingly drawn to the omnipresent industrialisation that dominated the graphic landscape and became intrigued with my ambivalent response to the subject matter; massive, rustic penstocks; unimaginable dam walls harnessing the power of nature and rhythmical, looping power lines that mesmerised as they spanned the land from one distant horizon to the next, as far as the eye could see and beyond.
