Siteworks Capsule Talks: Rebecca Mayo, Aunty Deidre Martin and Jacob Morris
As part of Siteworks: From a deep valley, Bundanon presented a quick-fire program of talks from leading scientists, artists and First Nations knowledge holders, sharing ‘weather reports’ from this time and place.
Rebecca Mayo lectures at the School of Art & Design, ANU. Mayo’s research examines how an art practice built around process, repetition and labour can produce artworks that manifest through—and reveal—practices of care. Her work for Siteworks 2022, The Plant Sensibilia Machine, is a large-scale hand-operated dyeing machine that brings the dyeing process out of the studio and into the public realm.
Mayo is in conversation with collaborators Aunty Deidre Martin and Jacob Morris as they discuss the project, and stories of plants and people living and growing together on Yuin Country.
