Linda Marie Walker


The work featured here belongs to a bigger project called A Drop In The Ocean, Slowly. This is a slow process of making visible texts and images which have been written and gathered over many years and are continuing to be written/gathered. Sometimes these texts have appeared in artworks, sometimes in academic journals, sometimes in essays for artists, and occasionally in literary journals. In 2004 I received an Australia Council grant (Visual Arts/Craft Board) to produce a number of texts in artist-book form for exhibition (of which this work is an aspect). The original plan was to produce one hundred books (a drop in the ocean, slowly).

In this feature, the three texts and video-work are presented separately, but also as pieces linked together by hypertext. Follow the links within each of the texts to move between texts and video.
