EILEEN CHONG: 2008: POLAROID SLR680

 

I try to convince myself: the spaces, the borders, mean something. I was never one to wait. Ten years—of sky, of sea. It is true that I like bright lights. The beginning, or the end: ‘the wind blows terribly here’. Rodin’s roses; never underestimate a woman who has had to rebuild herself.

PHOTODUST is an independent art and photography organisation based in Melbourne, Australia. We are a not-for-profit Asia-Pacific curation project. Our aim is to engage and encourage collaboration between artists, for the production and publication of photographic and lens-based art. PHOTODUST aims to establish a unique perspective toward visual culture. For this purpose, we are constantly searching for artworks that involve the use of photography and related processes. The rules are simple: all photographic and lens-based works will be considered. Our only requirement is that the work should be produced by artists born or based in the Asia-Pacific region. www.photodust.org (copyright details available here: http://peril.com.au/about/photodust/)
