I describe my practice as interdisciplinary response to place based learning. A process driven experiment that takes various forms as a kind of unfolding and entangled dialectic, not between people, but between biospheric phenomena and disciplinary perspectives on historical and contemporary nature/culture binaries. I am eager to address shifting Australian perceptions of land over time through an interdisciplinary approach to critically engaging the spheres of ecology, psychology and photography through chronological assessment of Australia's changing national identity. In tracing these disciplines I draw on narrative shifts towards what might be considered a new artistic movement (moment) in the birth of a dialogic of creative practice for the anthropocene. I call this process a post-humanist post-materiality perspective, or, a practice of environmental commensalism.
