Unfolding: Willoughby Incinerator, 2020
Handmade Paper, Photography and Projection


Unfolded: Willoughby Incinerator centres on the Willoughby Incinerator site through an analysis of existing conditions together with interpretative and generative investigation. The work embodies movement through the undulating rhythms of the folded planes, allowing for a flow of perceptions through bodily and physical transitions in space which serves to continually rearrange the site’s architectural and entropic history. Unfolded: Willoughby Incinerator constructs a second condition of reality surrounding the site, representing another way of exploring the spaces and forms of its structures through a depiction of the characteristics of the site, the entropic and historic resonance, alongside my personal connection with the site, from growing up in Naremburn.

The work features in Willoughby City Council Retracing exhibition on show at Art Space on the Concourse 23 September – 18 October 2020.
