Newtown High School of the Performing Arts
Time, money and another brick in the wall
HSC year: 2018, ARTEXPRESS year: 2019
Expressive form: Photomedia
My body of work addresses the tension between the people and their government, drawing on current issues facing Sydneysiders. Using surrealist photomontage, my images exemplify the fragmented state of communication between the community and the politicians who lead this country, revealing a grand moral disregard for society, where money is chosen over the people’s time, security and sense of belonging. This work responds to three significant political issues I have experienced first-hand as a Sydney resident: the costly and protracted WestConnex project, the opportunistic sale of the Sirius building, and the ongoing issues of public school funding.
