The Ocean Room is the first video installation I made. It combines a simplified wooden building with stairs leading to a video image. It reflects a contemplative state of mind. I spent a lot of time in my bedroom in Avalon Sydney reading novels, writing, listening to music and drawing.
The Ocean Room is a thinking space.
