Four Tales from Natural History (2004)

This four track sound installation was shown at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art in 2004. Four identical lecterns broadcasted sounds of animals, earthquakes, plants and fire ecologists when viewers approached. The position and control of the viewer as the authoritative speaker at a lectern was challenged, playing with and destabilising the classical hierarchy of nature. Four Tales from Natural History was also shown in fieldwork/fieldwalking in 2006.
