A Little Skiting on the Side 2000



Images, animations, stories, music, and poetry were composed by people from the Flinders Island community through meetings, workshops, walks and talks with people in their homes, studios, and favourite places. These were worked together into a "digital tapastry': A Little Skiting on the Side, an interactive CDROM (windows O.S.).

The project evolved throughout three visits, with most of the media digitising, editing and aurthoring done in my Launceston studio in between times. Communication with community members was maintained off island through post, telephone and email.

Composed as an Identity Distinct Community Arts project and funded by The Australia Council, 'Skite' was screened with live performances by the group, "Road Kill" (who made the sound track), at Launceston's Bass Strait Forum and on Flinders Island.
