Fragments of light and looping projections float above a subterranean stream, drawing on the cinematic past of the spaces above and the ways this architecture has been put to use over time.

Tom Blake's solo and collaborative practice draws on fragmented moments, looped imagery and recurring motifs as potential sites for contemplating the psychological, architectural and technological frameworks that surround us. Tom has exhibited in Australia, Japan and Italy and has been a finalist in the Fisher's Ghost Art Award, the FAC Print Award and The Blake Prize. Tom has previously undertaken residencies with the Museo de Arte Moderno (MAM) ChiloƩ, Fremantle Arts Centre, PICA, North Metro TAFE, Tenjinyama Art Studios and is currently a studio artist at Parramatta Artists Studios. Tom is also part of momo doto, an ongoing collaboration with Brisbane-based artist Dominique Chen.
