Masters of Arts by Research candidate, Cim Sears
Cim Sears research is an exploration into the absence of Western Desert Aboriginal narratives via her own recently discovered ancestral connections which were historically erased by the State. Cim's practice-led research is primarily characterised by printmaking processes, photographic techniques and ceramics.
Cim's methodology of walking (Chinna, 2014) as knowing and making, or interconnectivity between body and space/place is supported by Derrida’s ideas of absence/presence and phenomenologist (Merleau-Ponty, 1962) who believes the body and world cannot be separated. This project, in its beginnings, contributes to the rewriting of Western Australian history.
