Gallery 1: 'In Search of Lost Time': 9:46am Mt Martha Beach : Cassandra Gill.

It is inherently human to search for something that is lost. Like Proust's novel 'In Search of Lost Time', I investigate the temporality of moments, in particular, referencing tiny details of information that are so easily overlooked.

I navigate this exploration through this fragile and transient landscape, questioning the value of memory with reference to contemporary society and explore what it means to search for something that is lost.

Galley 3: Transfiguration: Diandra Irawan

An object can be captured as an image, an illustration or document. This conversion from three dimensional to a flat image is a common process in the field of art, revealing notions of transfiguration and change.

It reveals the sustaining growth of an abstract image into objects and vice versa. Painting, sculptures and installation are parts of one entity implying of transformation.
