Moving Graffiti

Josephine Starrs, Leon Cmielewski

Moving Graffiti is a stop motion animation that depicts a hand drawn map of the Shoalhaven River, morphing into an Australian Bass fish leaping out of the river. The Bass are in decline due to weirs and dams blocking migration on most of our rivers. Tallowa Dam on the Shoalhaven excluded the Bass from more than 80% of their habitat before a fish lift was built. We projected the fish/river animation onto several locations around Bundanon, from old fence posts to the stone walls of the Bundanon homestead, re-shot and edited to create this artwork. Moving Graffiti was installed the Bundanon Homestead Library from 29 September through to 29 October 2012 as part of Siteworks 2012.
