2006 Twin channel moving image with dual stereo sound.
The second part of a trilogy of moving image works produced for gallery installation. Composed as a series of short interrelated films for presentation as a twin screen installation, BackStrikesEmpire is concerned with abstracting images and creating sequences which refer to the figure in the landscape and to the natural phenomena. Shot in the salt flats, gorges, deserts and bush of Australia with an original score commissioned from leading Australian sound artist Adam Nash. Random programming is applied during the screening of the work to produce juxtapositions of sound and image.
