Through our ongoing experimentation with material processes we aim to generate connections between forces, movement and duration to register the dynamics of matter. 'Blind Tactics' results from a set of experimental processes that respond to questions of material-force relations. It registers impacts and impressions from charcoal projectiles inflecting the surface as an index of intensity. Research contribution: 'Blind Tactics' continues OSW’s ongoing exploration of the complex threads that connect geophysical processes to anthropogenic activity. This ‘geo-social’ field of investigation is driven by the significance of the interrelated processes of metabolism and extinguishment. The residue of collision events recorded in 'Blind Tactics' evokes encounters through which the dynamic movement of matter unfolds. The carbon in the charcoal serves as a common element in all known life, as well as a range of uses from gunpowder to fuel. Research significance: 'Blind Tactics' was one of 63 finalists selected from over a 1000 entries sent from across Australia for this annual prize. This year’s prize was judged by: Jane Alexander, Director, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Victoria Lynn, Director, TarraWarra Museum of Art, and Dr Kyla McFarlane, Curator of Academic Programs (Research), The Ian Potter Museum of Art, University of Melbourne. The prize was accompanied by a catalogue with an essay written by Dr Kyla McFarlane that features a discussion of 'Blind Tactics' [page 6].",
