Artist Craig Walsh is known for his stunning video and data projections in public spaces and, more recently, for producing works in collaboration with communities. This book focuses on works produced since 2000, when we published Walsh’s last monograph, Insite. While covering a huge range of projects, it focuses particularly on Walsh’s recent projects Digital Odyssey (a series of residency-based works made in rural, regional, and remote Australia), Murujuga in the Pilbara (which explores the relationship of the Pilbara’s local indigenous communities to Country), and Embedded (which extends that enquiry to consider impact of mining on the Murujuga). Michael Fitzgerald essay provides an overview of Walsh’s work. Judith Blackall’s and Robert Leonard’s essays address Digital Odyssey and Embedded respectively. Annemarie Kohn interviews the artist.
