This is an island that I went around on a boat (Port Arthur, Tasmania) and it's kind of an ugly model. But when we get around the back you can really see like the geological formation on this. Here! you see this bit? [0:26] , I feel you could, like, get a coin in there. [0:33] Get like a screwdriver in there, like lift that up - really understand it as, you know, ..like a piece of stone. So I'm curious about that scale shift. and how you think about things differently after you've experienced them, when you experience them in this virtual form.

This scale shift that is the result of my method is related to the work of the Minimalists, who felt that scale is
one
of
the
most
important
 developments
 in
 twentieth century
 art (Judd,
1970)

While
the
scale
used
in
minimal
art
is
expecting
to
heighten the
viewer’s
awareness


by
initiating
 a
 comparison
 between
 perceptual
 body
 and
 the
 exhibited
 artefact
 (Fried,


1967)
