Construct is a series of detailed aerial landscape photography above the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia industrial environment.
As I looked down from above, I began to focus on the repetition, patterns, form, structure and organisation of different industries. From the air, there is always something to see, learn and understand. I’ve always been interested in what creates employment opportunities, particularly in the building, shipping and automotive industries.
With automation technologies becoming more prevalent in certain areas of logistic based operations, I wanted to take an elevated screenshot of what our landscape looks before it begins to change again.
I was interested in the space that big business & corporations occupy and how they use it for their and our own perpetual good, or evil.
Through this series I want the viewer to reconnect with the demand on our planet and the human effort behind our every desire.
Hardstand – Building & maintenance technologies are stored and used at our every desire. Some of these machines are also becoming smarter at how they work. The tire marks on deck of this image show the rigorous routine of these technologies lives, and with more development, these simple tasked machines can be given instructions that can be carried out by themselves. Mapping and GPS is so common place today that anything can be tracked from A to B in a timely manner. It can also check itself in at the workshop for maintenance.
