This triptych represents the culmination of the ideas represented in the Carbon group monoprints and night vision studies.
Overlaid on the work is a contour map of the Maliana area, just a few kilometres from the border with Indonesia, similar to those shown at daily briefings or used by ADF patrols. This layer creates for the soldiers a tenuous link to Timor-Leste. Without it, they could be anywhere, in almost any peacekeeping location. "Dots of data" are placed on the surface of the canvas like immense streams of information.Hide
