Surface Tension - exhibited at The Australian Centre of Photography

Taking form as an evolving slideshow of still images, Surface Tension revels in a sense of slowness, reduction and tranquillity. Centring on organic forms, and presenting them sparingly and in isolation, the series encapsulates the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi that considers beauty with respect to imperfection and transience. In reference to the Buddhist underpinnings of the concept, the series portrays various flowers or leaves set against a minimal background, emphasising both the beauty of nature, but also acknowledging the fleetingness of its bloom. In capturing these moments of vulnerable and temporary beauty, Surface Tension centres our attention on the potentiality of the minutiae to represent aesthetic perfection within a certain moment.
