This output is an artwork titled BB, for a curated group photography show called On This Site: Bateman's Bay. The idea behind the show and some install shots are in the attachments. At the invitation of curator Lee Grant I was asked to create a photographic work in response to the town of Batemanâ€™s Bay, the gateway to the Southcoast and for many Canberrans, a regular destination. My work focuses on the unique topiary letters BB that grow on the side of the highway. It stands not proudly announcing the entrance to the town, but halfway through, as a belated reminder of where you are to those motorists passing through. The work continues my research into vernacular visual cultures and the representation of the everyday. In terms of my own research-led practice it was also relevant for my interests in place-making. That is, how people make meaning of their world, particularly through practices of mark-making.
