Eliza Dyball's conceptual sound piece 'in-completeness' will take place in Queensbridge Square, Southgate. The movement of individuals through space will be revealed as passersby obey or disobey the instructions within the work.

2. Artist Statement
My practice functions through the observation of spatial geometries in relation to the body, physical narrative and residue. In the development of this project I have been investigating social chorography throughout a public space.
I was motivated by the chance to intercept and alter an individual's experience of a collective movement, I focussed on the idea of transition, movement from point X to point Y, primarily the action of walking and its variables.
Thoroughfares with multi directional paths became the sites of strongest interest. I approached site with the notion that point X and point Y are determined by each individual, and the way in which each individual chooses to move from point X to point Y is limitless.
In response to the question of "how can we reshape and re-imagine public space", I drew from the language of directors, dance choreographers and riding instructors; people who connect words to movement. The resulting audio track is an abstract constructed around instruction and practice, inviting the public to investigate their perception of reality within a heightened environment of mimicry and echo.
The project will playfully blur the line between public and private, audience and performer through an interactive and thoughtful questioning of social conditioning and behavioural phenomena.
Eliza Dyball utilizes photography, video and sculpture in her work to construct parameters and spatial limitations on space and subject. Completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2010, Eliza has received numerous awards, including the Victorian Collage of the Arts Travel Scholarship 2010, and the National Gallery of Victoria Graduate Award 2009.
Eliza has exhibited internationally including New York, Paris and Amsterdam, with examples of her work being published in the Thames and Hudson publication re:Generation Tomorrows photographers today. In 2011 Eliza was curated into 3 Square 2 at Conical, Melbourne. She has received the Australia Council Art Start Grant and is currently a Gertrude Contemporary Studio artist.
