So I’ve escaped the joys of a Melbourne winter and taken up at the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada. I’m taking daily treks about the place, and so far its pretty damn impressive. Everything here is just a little more hyper and intense than I’ve known. I’m exploring with my camera as I go with intentions for a new body of work to come. It’s amazing how the light is different this side of the world, the trip well supported by the wonderful people at Arts Victoria. Thanks.
Scott Morrison is a sound and video artist based in Sydney, Australia. His practice encompasses live performance, gallery installation and festival screenings that have focused towards the synergistic properties of the moving image. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions nation-wide and his audiovisual works have screened extensively nationally and abroad. His primary research and output has fallen under the title of “ballad(s) for quiet horizons”. This body of work details and further develops the artist’s appreciation of Australia’s rural landscape. It is an exploration and abstraction of natural occurrence, rhythmic meditations of place and how familiar experience(s) can be re-interpreted, re-imagined and rendered anew.
