Drawing Water IV


The connection between the Blue Mountains and the waterways of Sydney is hard to visualise. This work allows the viewer to move from the Pacific Ocean through the complex waterways of Sydney to the foothills of the Blue Mountains.

The map that is the ground for the tracing is made up of three topographic maps produced by Department of Lands Geocentric Datum of Australia 1994 (GDA94: Sydney Heads 9130-2N, Parramatta River 9130-3N and Prospect 9030-2N). The dimensions of the drawing from these three maps is 600mm wide and 3.6 metres long and is created on a specially designed table. The drawing is then scanned and digitally animated with an audio track. The foundation of the sound is the human voice singing the note G as a single tone that holds the human breath.
