Australian Landscapes explores the shifting social and geographic terrain of Greater Melbourne. Referencing Peter Weir’s iconic Picnic at Hanging Rock, this body of work documents the shift in our sense of place and belonging from the bush to the suburbs. Dressed as the film’s central my 'Miranda' is a ghost of Australia past and present, lost not in the wilderness of Hanging Rock, but in the highways, pokie venues, living spaces and new developments that increasingly shape our landscape.
