Depending on the Day
Created during a residency at Fraser Street Studios, this image records every step I made as I walked along every street within the Chippendale boundary map over a period of three months, the residency’s duration. I undertook the residency in April, May and June in 2009, a period of upheavel and transition for the district.
The former brewery site was to be transformed into a residential / commercial district on the edge of Sydney’s CBD facing Broadway, a busy, some might say unattractive, thoroughfare. For a long period of time, the site was off limits to regular residents, either because they didn’t work there or the site lay dormant awaiting development.
