This research explores the capacity of Contemporary Art to un-forget history, with a focus on the history of Wadjemup/Rottnest Island in Western Australia and its one hundred year history as an Aboriginal prison for boys and men. The exploration of materials within my own practice – photography, film, sculpture, installation and sound – assist in examining the potential of Contemporary Art to respond to what has been forgotten in unique and embodied ways.
