Clara Chan – Posthuman Convergence

Posthuman Convergence combines hand-stitched fabric works with video projection, to explore the human and non-human relationship to the Anthropocene.

Through the idea of symbionts (organisms living in symbiosis with one another), the work prompts viewers to create their own stories between human and nonhuman entities and consider ways for a more sustainable way of life.

Location – The Basin Art Hub

Miller's Homestead, Melrose Court and Dorrigo Drive, Boronia
