2BEACHES is a process driven video installation developed through interviews conducted with a diverse range of Australians from across the Asian diaspora. The work surveys values and beliefs that have the potential to challenge the dominant paradigms and policies of a country founded under colonialism.
2BEACHES combines long-term grass roots community consultation within an advanced experimental digital artwork. The work surveys the ideas that inform the values and beliefs of under-represented Australians; these ideas have the potential to challenge the dominant paradigms and policies of a country founded under colonialism. The interviews elicit thoughtful responses to probing questions around ethics, philosophy, theology, cosmology, democracy and sociology.
By articulating a multiplicity of knowledge systems the project’s aim is to prepare a syncretic philosophy, towards understanding the principles that may define our future island nation.Current work in progress here
