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.
Space - Spaces all over Australia are left empty, even some of the busiest roads are regularly unoccupied. We rely on transport systems to get from A to B. It has been proven in other countries that it is possible to run an entered rail network purely off wind energy. Unfortunately, it isn't a turnkey process. Lot’s of man-hours have gone into building now dated systems. It’s not a matter of when but how long it will take for the wounds to heal. Australia has some of the highest coastal winds in the southern hemisphere; there is clearly something that can be achieved with such a vast stand alone continent.
