Artwork:
Screen Test (revived) – The Devils Tower
Mixed media durational performance installation with single channel 4K to HD video

The Bylong Valley has many sedimentary sandstone landforms. One in particular evokes a popular sci-fi Hollywood location: The Devil’s Tower in Wyoming. In the midst of a giant shed of old furniture there lies a recreation of a scene from that film. This durational performance installation is a re-enactment of the character and a scene from the film (played by Richard Dreyfuss) where he obsessively attempts to build a model of the imaginary mountain in his living room. You are invited to join in and participate in his obsession if you dare. _This work is supported by the Australian Artists’ Grant. The Australian Artists’ Grant is a NAVA initiative, made possible through the generous sponsorship of Mrs Janet Holmes a Court and the support of the Visual Arts Board, Australia Council for the Arts.
