Opium drift

Empty pill capsules on acrylic

800 mm x 1150 mm

Poppies are intrinsically linked to remembering. But in their role in the production of opiates they are also an agent for altering our inner landscape. In Opium drift thousands of empty pill capsules have been used to produce a pixelated Tasmanian landscape based in reality but other-worldy in nature. The pill capsule is used here as a symbol of both the physical and the metaphysical, the real and the imagined, the natural and the technological. Like our physical surroundings we too shift and change – becoming altered by circumstance. Change is our only constant.
