Rachel Peachey & Paul Mosig
Peachey and Mosig began working together after graduating from the ANU School of Art in 2004. They currently live and work in the Blue Mountains, Australia, often in collaboration with their two children Sascha Mosig and Jack Mosig.
Their practice focuses on human / environment relationships from a range of perspectives. They have an ongoing interest in the various ways people inhabit and move through place and time. They are interested in how these challenges are navigated individually and in groups and how humans project their emotions and ideas onto particular landscapes and non human entities. They work with a variety of mediums including photography, sculpture, video, sound, textiles and found objects.
The Altitude Project
The Amy Johnson Flight School offers the curious an opportunity to engage the senses as they take a break from normal operating procedure. Students will go through a series of rituals before using sensors and real time processing to explore Kingsford Smith Park through a manipulated reality.
The school asks its students to reassess their relationship to vertical space by confounding and amplifying the usual sensory reactions to the landscape. Though this practice they can pursue a deeper understanding of the irreversible shift in perspective that the achievement of human flight has given us.
