“Listening Device VII:Felt Histories” (2016), was commissioned by Blacktown Arts Centre, and went on to win the 2017 Paramor Art + Innovation Prize, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. This work consisted of touch sensitive textiles, a touch screen and a walkable copper drawing on a platform. When visitors interacted with it, they heard recordings of stories, songs and poems on the themes of migration and diaspora.
