Archival-looking glass slides re-frame contemporary landscapes captured on a meandering walk west across suburban Sydney (2005-07). The slides incorporate damage – missing shards, cracks, foxing, fading – digitally derived from a set of glass-plate negatives of the area shot by a local photographer a century earlier. These ‘future memories of now’ speak fondly of suburbia, and home, but also of unbridled progress and loss.
