Commissioned by ArtCycle for a ‘Mystery Ride’ in Sydney Park, Sydney Rides Festival, 2016

(Video with sound, 5:00mins., looped.)
The images of this video are formalist in style made using a stationary camera. The sound is a mix of the ambient noises in Sydney Park as it wakes up and sounds of Earth from space recorded by NASA. I layered what can be seen and heard with what is unseen and unheard in our surroundings, making use of the enhanced visual and audio capabilities afforded by digital technology.
I returned to the same location a year later to film sunrise in Sydney Park. I maintained the same formal structure in my filming and editing techniques. I used only the ambient noise recorded while filming at the park.
