Shifting Surrounds is an interactive digital media installation by contemporary artist Yandell Walton who grew up in Cairns and lives and works in Melbourne.
“In Shifting Surrounds, Yandell Walton presents a series of site-specific installations that examine the continual process of change and adaptation that is the nature of life — in the planet, its ecosystems, and us. In the exhibition we travel from the sewers beneath our feet to Earth’s outer atmosphere, visit a digital forest and an industrial wasteland, and experience the alarming intensity of a tidal wave engulfing the building — all while observing the steady countdown towards a world that is 1.5˚C warmer thanks to human activity”.
