Fork

16" x 24" print on canvas
At the end of a 2000ft corridor into Mt Field comes a fork. Right, a dead end with what looks like spoiled grease. Left, ends with a pile of wood with an unclimbable vertical shaft yet to be explored.

The Cart

16" x 24" embellished print on canvas
On the second level, after climbing a 200ft ladder and 60ft of rope, is a mining cart that moves with the slightest push, as if it's been maintained since it's abandonment almost 70 years ago.

Single Use

16" x 24" embellished print on canvas
This was one of the syringes filled with 10ml of morphine that I would inject into my mother to ease the pain caused by terminal bone cancer. She had a butterfly needle, kind of like an intervenous drip, that the syringe would attach to.
