Collaboration with Tiyan Baker for Next Wave Festival 

Launching themselves into the ultimate battle between IRL and URL, video artists Xanthe Dobbie and Tiyan Baker reach behind Australian webcams to capture six of the nation’s biggest YouTube stars in intimate moving portraits. From the violet-hued world of Melbourne musician Damielou Shavelle to the culinary creations of CakesByChoppA and Shyamali Sinha (Foodie’s Hut), Dobbie and Baker pit their contrasting artistic styles against each other in a series of video portraits, exhibited along an everyday shopping strip.

Developed for Next Wave 2016 and supported by City of Melbourne and Creative Victoria Arts grants.

   Xanthe acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which their work is made, the Widjabul/Wyabul people of the Bundjalung Nation, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, and the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. They pay their respects to elders, past, present, and emerging.  Sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
