Shy (dissolution + exchange)

A network of mail artists, contemporary artists and non-artists in Australia, South Africa, Botswana, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and New Zealand transferred the image of the Shy Albatross across the southern hemisphere. The albatross dissolves as it is repeatedly photocopied around the world. As the image decays a network is made and the imprint of a bird that migrates around the earth, reminding us of the borderless nature of the Southern Ocean.

Attendees of the Environmental Utterances Conference in Cornwall were invited to interact with a series of questions and images about nonhuman communication and knowing your local place. These were printed on placemats at the conference’s main meal event. The meal proceeded, comments were registered and the placemats were mailed back in Australia.
