HONOURS PROJECTS 2012 FEATURE:
A two screen video installation exploring diasporic hybrid identity.
A work that challenges the limitations of representation of the Arab Australian, using audio-visual media to externalise the internal complexity of hybrid identity.
Stories my mother told me
A story in parts.
Stories entwine - that which is meaningful and connecting can be that which is not your own, can be the words which belong to someone else. Where does your story begin? Is it worth telling? Perhaps someone else’s means more, is dearer.
Maybe She's Born With It.
Fast cars, girls and a guest appearance from Kim Kardashian. ZOMG Kim Kardashian!
A parodic reframing of the representations of women in the contemporary commercial media through a corporeal and durational performance.

All Comments (27). The voice that takes your hand and well before your head knows where that hand is leading, your feet, your whole body are compelled to follow, in step… (stanibol 9 months ago 5 Likes)
A musing on theatricality, absorption and the processes of consciousness.
The Headdress Series, or, Why Am I here?
A series of journeys and encounters around Sydney culminate in a performative exhibition.
Exploring participatory performance, the artist has been taking walks through Sydney adorned in various headdresses and stopping to chat with whomever is willing. The result sees an interesting experiment into the ethics of social works, and the simple shared imaginings of this place in which we live.
James Bond: The Spy Of Many Faces
James Bond must once against fight to save the world against certain doom, but can he defeat his greatest enemy, himself?
While on a mission, James Bond uncovers a plot to sabotage a space-station capable of collecting solar energy, which plans to solve the global energy crisis. When Bond tries to find out who is behind this grand scheme he is forced to face his greatest enemy, himself! A Remix film destined to be the best Bond film yet!
Dancing Down the Line
An explorative study on movement as a gesture and its transmission.
This work is an experiment in the transmission of movement across bodies via video. An originary movement phrase is transferred down the line, across dance-trained bodies via video recordings of individual performances.
Are you listening to me?
Dyslexia as I see it | a non-normative subjective expression
Through the confusion of a nonlinear narrative we encounter Sally, an intelligent and creative young woman who is inhibited by shame and the belief that she is stupid. Sally has a strong desire to make good in life and when the opportunity arises to fill in at a service station, she doesn’t want to let it pass her by.
Laying the carpet
A look at the borders of performance.
We see each other, strangers, even look each other in the eyes.
Maybe we do nothing, say nothing.
Only to depart when our journey is complete.
Becoming strangers once again.
The Honours Projects is a festival of original investigative works from our practice-based Honours students. The nine students come from a range of disciplines: Media and Film Studies, Dance Studies and Theatre and Performance Studies.
This year we are splitting the works into two distinct programs running from Tuesday to Thursday. Both programs will have a selection of performances and screenings. On Saturday the screen-based works will be exhibited all day. These short works are the result of students’ engagement in their own self-directed research projects. The practical projects form part of the students’ submission for the Honours degree in the School of the Arts and Media. This is an opportunity to see the work of these emerging artists in a research environment. It is also an opportunity for the students to test their ideas with an audience.
Honours Projects 2012 will be a lively few days of contemporary performance and screen-based work. We invite you to take this opportunity to view and support the work of a group of adventurous and creative emerging artists.
