If I could fly was developed in response to the illusion of a dynasty once situated within the restricted airspace of HMAS Albatross (the Fleet Air Arm) - Yuin Country, where the artist was raised. The work fuses processes of movement and surveillance with artefacts of personal security and reflection in an attempt to identify vulnerabilities within the dynamisms of geo-political, conflict-driven systems.
The artist acknowledges and pays deep respects to the Yuin Peoples on whose ancestral Lands this work was produced.
