Sound and Video Installation
by Artist in Residence Steven Alyian
An immersive and reflective multimedia exhibit inspired by the environment of the Esperance region. Created whilst staying at The Cannery as ‘Artist in Residence’ in September 2021, Steven visited natural locations in the region recording audio and video of places that invoked a sense of stillness. Artefacts such as bones and flowers were taken from each of these locations and used to create geometric patterns featured in each works. All elements are manipulated into a visionary music and video tapestry that simulates extra-sensory perception, reflecting the inherent and immaculate design of the natural flora and fauna of the Esperance region.

Around the world thousands of people are steadfastly preparing for the end of civilisation as we know it. Doomsday preppers, as they’re known, collect specialised survival products, skills, and knowledge, both in real life and as members of online communities. The prepper phenomenon is an expression of widely relatable cultural anxieties.
Preppers examines this global subculture and its distinct aesthetics, jargon and apocalyptic fantasies. The exhibition features five cutting edge Australian and International artists presenting sculpture, installation, video, and prints that reflect their fascination with, and participation in the culture of doomsday prepping.
