Hemipteron is a form of neo-documentary which elucidates the underbelly that impregnates the vernacular of Mildura. The imagery is informed and inspired by choreographed, instigated and random voice recordings at a specific site which is both a physical place and biospherical zone. Recent world issues in regard to technology and information have put technological advancement at the forefront of much art practice which has made use of technology, including Google Street View and surveillance video.  The project is a form of audio-visual haiku that raises questions in regard to poignant contemporary issues: local/global, obvious/surreptitious surveillance and unscripted/choreographed public/private behavioural patterns.
