Whilst in residence, Odewahn worked with photographer Catherine Rogers. Odewahn expanded her repertoire in the technique of ‘micro-mosaic’, experimenting with silver, copper and gold to create a series of hollow forms. In addition, Odewahn created drawings from her large collection of themed newspaper photographs.

Odewahn was also in residence at Bundanon in 2018.
