Sally thinks she is pretty popular, until she finds out she is the only

It's not until Sally stumbles across Stalkers Inc. the complete stalking

mins 36 secs.
Darren, Fiona, Joe and Anne are 4 young adults driving home after a
big night out. They decide to stop off near an airport runway to watch
aeroplanes and smoke marijuana. Darren talks about seeing UFOs while
getting stoned, much to the displeasure of his temperamental girlfriend
Fiona. After getting stoned they continue on home, only to have the
car stall on them in the middle of nowhere. An argument breaks out,
but when Fiona notices some lights in the distance, it seems that everything
is OK. Or is it?

video, 2003, 3 mins.
My video work is an investigation of sound and image and the relationship
between them. Water gushing has an emotional resonance in its explosive
movement which is an analogue for the motion of sound waves, echoed
by the sound accompanying the image. The rushing and gushing is also
reflected in the emotion of the viewer, who cannot resist being pushed
along with the energy and pace of the waves seeing an echo in the sound
and in the image.
Dean McInerney, Mungo
Passage, Super-8 film, 1997, 4 mins.
An expedition through an ancient cultural site adopts
and mimics the passage of the red kangaroo. An unconscious act that
reproduces the hunters dreaming of the hunted.
