Watch this on your iPod - Vodcast available here
Artists have always responded to the major political issues of the their age, sometimes subliminally, sometimes via direct engagement.
Dr Phillip George discusses the latest installment in his ongoing artistic investigation into Middle Eastern geo-politics. His latest Borderlands works consist of night vision green panoramic photographs and surf boards emblazoned with intricate Islamic patterns, in an unlikely fusion of Eastern iconography and Aussie beach culture.
George is a digital media artist and Senior Lecturer at the COFA. He has had 23 solo exhibitions and over 100 group exhibitions nationally and internationally.
This talk was recorded live at COFA on June 1, 2010 as part of the free COFA Talks public lecture series.
