Sorted / Unsorted

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


This series of cyanotypes was created through a collaboration with archaeologist Annie Clarke, as practice-led research into archaeological processes of collection, categorisation and analysis. It involved working with excavated shell material which was in the process of being 'sorted' to reveal information about what species of shell were gathered and eaten by the old people on Groote Eylandt. The cyanotypes reveal the trace of the shell and in this sense are an mnemonic also for archaeological process, history, change and continuity. The series was exhibited in a showcase of ANU Vice-Chancellor Artist Fellows who worked across disciplines to create new art and insight.
