The Black Swan

Spec & Synopsis

Date: 2008

Format: HDV diptych
Duration: 18 minutes

Focusing on the multi-referential symbolism of the black swan as a contemporary universal concept, a symbol of Indigenous significance and a cross-continental historical icon connecting Europe with Australia, this audio-visual installation uses this living phenomena as the foundation of a sociopolitical exploration of the co-existence of difference in an age of globalisation.
