Finding Your Way: Finding Home is inspired by the neon signage that used to be common in Melbourne city streets. It uses the heightened colour of neon and still images to simulate the affect of movement. It reflects upon a truly Melbourne aspect of life, immigration. Deb BainKing’s work focuses on relationships and social narratives embedded in time and place. Growing up in a small country town in rural Australia has led to an interest in social and cross cultural relationships and how geography moulds community.
