Light Boxes

In the 1960’s slides and slide shows were a relatively common way to capture memorable events, we’ve taken that idea and extended it to reflect a nostalgic view of the moon landing, our time on the land in Namadgi and at Readycut Cottage and our fascination with the moon, the stars and beyond. The box slides are in 4:3 ratio reminiscent of the format used for film and television in the 1960s.
