Based in Melbourne and London, James' conceptually driven practice focuses on the way that cultural and natural forces intersect to shape both landscape and perception. Through abstraction, fieldwork, site-actions and studio research, his recent projects explore paradigms of measurement, commodification of water bodies, and investigates concepts of time by traversing the primordial to the technological networks of the contemporary world. His site-actions often include modifying analogue and digital methods to emulate conditions of the site.
