Opium Drift

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. Empty pill capsules have been used to produce a pixelated Tasmanian landscape, based in reality but other-worldly in nature. The pill capsule is used here as a symbol of both the physical and the metaphysical, the real and the imagined.
