Unconscious, 2015

Inspired by a recurring nightmare as a child, Unconscious explores ideas of the unknown. In a society riddled with fear conjuring propaganda of the ‘other’, Risi creates an environment designed to distil fear. Unconscious utilises the Illowra Battery to explore these ideas through an ultra-slow nightmare. Illowra Battery is a series of military tunnels constructed in 1942 to protect the Port Kembla industrial complex from a growing fear of invasion during WWII at the expense of the Indigenous people who were removed from the Hill permanently.
