A Walk up the Hill in Six different Countries
- video SD. 60 Mins. 2002

6 minute excerpt below:

A Walk Up the Hill in Six different Countries is a sort of immersive video game pan through the landscapes of the Australian bush, breathlessly narrated by descriptions of the imaginary topologies of the Isle of Dionysis, Shangri-La, Narnia, and Utopia. Virtual landscapes that have been drawn from the experience of landscapes and which in turn shape and narrate our own understandings of the world. Here, they are the imported stories that have overlaid and erased the previous narratives that spoke the land in ways that we can now never know.
