The following video was projected onto a piece of hay wrap suspended from the highest beam of the Nyang Woolshed. Accompanying the visuals was John Britten’s arresting soundscape which featured sounds captured during his visit to the site. All video was shot using an iphone4.
Below the video projection I constructed what I later referred to as The Yarrein River Shrine; a collection of found objects including bones, bottles, plants, rocks, wasp nests, camel melons and numerous rusting remains.
The shrine structure was created using a corner cupboard and a large old wardrobe that I lay on its side and covered with a layer of red sand. I then set about carefully arranging the various objects and finished by adding a dozen or so candles.

Throughout the evening Peter Redfearn entertained the audience by playing numerous songs on his 12 string guitar. At times he was accompanied by Will Eldridge on banjo, and by evening’s end Peter had turned electric and with a little help from Georgia and Olivia Tully-Watts was belting out Hallelujah!
