Collective Dependency

Description: Wall surfaces and streetscape scenes were documented over a two-month period throughout a defined area of inner city Sydney.  Of particular interest were walls where graffiti had been buffered by council workers and where personal messages or items of personal property had been left exposed to public view.  Action Researcher/Performers were positioned within this research zone, documented in various configurations attached to each other and the urban environment whilst wrapped in a uniform grey fabric.  A series of curated A3 size image sets were developed that combined the streetscape scenes with the figure images.  These composite scenes were then pasted to the walls of the research zone for a serial location exhibition, audience members following the trail of images with a marked site map.
