Originally commissioned by ABC Radio National, Iris was curated into Passages at Contemporary Art Tasmania by Emily Bullock.
For this exhibition the sound work was expanded into a installation, with the addition of original blueprints for the house it was recorded in and about, and a balsa and paint model of the house created from my own memory.

This exhibition is an outcome of the Contemporary Art Tasmania Curatorial Mentorship Program.Passages brings together six artists whose work engages with the subjective and sensory encounters between people and place. Featuring artists working across a range of media, the works feature tactile, emotional apprehensions of intimate places and experiences to reflect on the inseparability of inside and outside, seeing and travelling, memory and imagination, vision and touch. In offering affective mappings of intimate spaces, Passages questions the cold, totalising visual representations of maps, offering moving engagements with places that have the potential to re-make the globe anew.
