Si Yi Shen : Imagining Terrains

Iris Image (002).jpg

Imagining Terrains builds on experiences, encounters and relationships developed during my 2022 research residency as part of the Broken Hill Open Cut Commission.

As a two-part narrative, this body of work interprets the present landscape of Broken Hill and speculates the future landscape through moving pictures and augmented reality sculptures.

The work is based on my exploration of the complex and vibrant physical and social terrain of Broken Hill, experienced through extensive walking of the landscape and interaction with the community. By collecting, interpreting and remixing photographs, videos, colours, audio and photogrammetry scans, the work paints an imaginative yet recognisable landscape of contemporary Broken Hill - deconstructing and reconstructing environments and objects, responding to belonging, place and identity.
