25 year old Damien Rudd is a student at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT). Says Rudd, “I always try to demonstrate the contrast between what life presently is and what it could be. To immerse ourselves in the oblivion of actions and know we’re making it happen.

Top, from the series Attraction and Repulsion (2010), Simple illustrated line diagrams have been superimposed over the photographic images to force the viewer to examine the content from a different perspective. The work was inspired by ballet dancer William Forsythe’s piece Human Writes (2005) in which the body becomes a tool to create and manipulate negative space.
