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.
Manuscript - To the untrained eye, these tubes have been stacked like any other stockyard. However, it is more likely to be partially managed by a computer system and it’s dedicated software. Throughout any given working week these tubes can be relocated internally and externally from the yard using tags that refer to purchase orders and other various information. From above, the design of this autonomy is similar to sheet music, a silent yet consistent method, making business more efficient.
