In-tray is a body of work comprising sculptures in wool and metal and cyanotype prints of metal frames. At the time of making it, I was engaged in an intense legal struggle with the Australian Taxation Office, challenging in court its decision to treat my art profession as a ‘hobby’.
I began by collecting metal frames that I found in the street, such as in-trays, bike baskets, fans, bird cages. From each frame I made a cyanotype print, experimenting with the placement of cast shadows. I then transformed the frames by stapling patches of wool onto each metal section, in denial of their original function.
The sculptural component of In-tray was exhibited at the Woollahra Sculpture Prize, Sydney in 2004.
