Jilda Simpson - Gallery

This image is of two new friends of mine, Olivia on the left, and Kye on the Right. Both girls are participants in the 2004 Indigenous New Media Lab. Even though we are all separated by large distances, we were brought together by our love for new media. This image belongs to a series of images called "coloured girls" which depicts the female participants in the course. I wanted to create these images to celebrate our identities as both being extremely culturally diverse, and also unifying similar.

I was part of the team that developed the website for the Interactive New Media Lab 2004. I helped construct the templates for the site as well as had input into the overall site.

"Burning Gammon Take" is a video project produced by three of the INML participants - Glenn Scott, Jenny Fraser and Myself. This one minute short film appropriates the Aboriginal words within Austen Tayshus' 'Australiana'. As a movement to reclaim the words used in the video like Waratah, Boomerang, Billabong, Wallaby, Dingo etc, we created a tongue-in-cheek pisstake that is unique and meaningful in todays society. We added "Gammon Cake" to even further adapt the routine to be meaningful, funny, and controversial particularly to those who made it!!

See Hypnotoad in action - You need quicktime to view it!

Hypnotoad is an hypnotic, interactive piece. Not for the weakling. This project experiements with colour and accompanying sound to generate general feelings of uneasyness, paranoia and some even say that the project is strangely sickening. My challenge to you all is to put your finger on what it is that makes you feel the way you do when you watch Hypnotoad in action..

Thanks Lawrence for giving Hypnotoad a voice, and to Andrew for your input on important colour decisions ; }
