As a rock climber my experience and perception of place is informed by cultural, kinaesthetic and corporeal knowledge. Rock climbers attribute qualities to a landscape, commemorate first ascents and document associated stories in written and pictorial representations. In this way climbers create their own community and connection with place.

My artist book ‘Ascent II’ includes printed images from my personal exploration of climbing mountains in Australia and abroad. The book format reflects on how climbers read landscapes, how we interpret their forms in the light of our own experience and memory, and that of our shared cultural community.
