is a three-channel video projection depicting a journey through an array of distorted natural landscapes accompanied by ethereal sounds. Together they grow into a haunting experience leading into a climax of nothingness; a reflection of Anna’s ambivalent feelings towards her existence. This sublime experience is meditative yet menacing evoking a space for contemplation. The imagery of the environment reflects Anna’s subjective experience of the diverse alpine environment in the Leeawuleena (Lake St Clair) National Park where she spent three weeks undertaking an artist residency during Winter this year. Permission to film was granted by the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre. The artist would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Leeawuleena (Lake St Clair) National Park where this project was created.
