    This series of works made using photographic media explores the aesthetics of the double entendre and visual pun.

    A series of photographic prints on linen included:

    • A tablecloth printed with a picture of a place setting after the meal has been eaten
    • A window curtain printed with the image of an outdoor view through a venetian blind
    • A sheet hanging on a clothesline printed with the image of bedsheets hanging out to dry
    • A tailored dress printed with the image of a naked female body, front and back (collection of the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam)

    A series of kinetic and interactive objects included:

    • Photographs of bricks, together making a brick wall that inflated and expanded out towards the viewer when a switch was stepped on
    • A photograph of Melbourne’s National Gallery of Victoria, in front of which water cascaded down over a pane of glass that in turn was being cleaned by an automotive windscreen wiper (collection of the NGV)
    • A photograph of a male torso that was physically modulated by a hidden air pump so that its chest was moving and the figure appeared to be breathing
    • A photographic diorama of Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, which when approached released the aroma of the beachside
