This short film ‘Family Ties’ by Victoria Silk Productions, records the conclusion of Susannah Williams artist in residency with Arterie program at the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse. The video documents the development process and project installation outside the Oncology treatment ward as it evolved during March.
Family Ties configures a scaled world map, drawn from origami, recycled Readers Digest atlas, string and pins. The coloured pins map the collected family histories and shared travel memories of the Lifehouse community and visitors, gathered over the three week residency, in February.
