Short Stories #1: Versions of Contemporary History 2010 (Mr Lincoln Florist, Melbourne, Australia)
solo show at The Melbourne Fringe Festival

Set in a florist on Gertrude Street, the audience sits in the shopfront.

Watching real-time stories unfold, through the window in the street before them, they listen to a collection of rich soundscapes featuring Australian accents amongst other languages, translated with subtitles on an TV screen, hung in the window.

This audiovisual installation explores aspects of Australian cultural identity in order to re-consider the various screens through which we Australians, see, hear, and negotiate the world around us. Staged in a boutique florist,  the audience sits in the shop window, with a view across Gertrude Street, Fitzroy and beyond to the housing commission flats.
