Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Titled 'Out of Sight, Out of Mind' this body of work visualises the daily struggle of those living in Isolation in East Bali who have been affected by the eruption of Mount Agung. As a result of being located on the slope of a recently erupted volcano in the village of Desa Ban many hamlets were forced to evacuate, leaving most of their clothes, belongings and livestock behind. Some were forced to sell their main source of income - cows. After five long months of living in refugee camps scattered all over the island of Bali, Indonesia they were finally able to return back to a place they once called home. This project captures some of the struggles that people in the Hamlets now face. Their time is spent weaving baskets as that provides enough income to feed themselves each day. Working from dusk until dawn is a challenge which will linger for approximately 5 years.
