Felix Wilson


Felix Wilson is working primarily with photographic images to engage viewers with some of the complexities and paradoxes of the human relationship to nature. For Wilson these are the most urgent questions of our time. He is particularly interested in the ways that images can be employed to draw out the connections between disparate ecological phenomena across spatial and temporal gaps and to bring viewers into new understandings without overtly didactic approaches.

Wilson is currently completing a PhD at RMIT University where his project explores using a photography based visual poetics as a strategy to explore the ecologies of the contemporary night-time city, through case studies in Melbourne and Berlin which have drawn out the interrelationships between brown coal and artificial light, within a context of global climate change and ecological crisis.
