Craig Walsh (b. 1966, Australia) often uses projection in response to existing environments and landscapes. His work plays with scale creating immersive and playful projection experiences, confronting real space and illusionary space. ‘Standing stone site’ 2012 was filmed in the Pilbara in Western Australia using time lapse technique to record the sunrise and sunset on the jagged iron ore landscape. The already unbelievable iron ore horizon is ‘double crossed’ in postproduction switching the sunrise of the sky with the sunset of the land and vice versa. He makes reference to contemporary mining culture introducing products into the installation that are used in the industry.

His work has been shown in a number of national and international exhibitions, including the Gwangju Biennale, Jakarta Biennale XIII, Indonesia; Yokohama International Triennale of Contemporary Art, Japan; 01SJ Biennial San Jose, California; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; Koganecho Bazaar, Japan; and DRIFT 08, London. He is currently Adjunct Professor at Griffith University.
