About New Territories
28 June 2013

Suburbia scares me. Ambre and I were in Canberra for Xmas with her Dad. We were driving around and I spotted a new housing estate beside the motorway in the middle of nowhere. We went in and I was immediately reminded of when I grew up on the Gold Coast during the housing boom, areas that used to be full of trees now had roads and I was learning to drive on them. New Territories is about the country becoming the city. It’s about where you used to live. It’s about houses becoming homes. It’s about high-fiving your neighbour out your kitchen windows. It’s about the future and how we’ll fuck everything nice and turn it into some kitschy crap for a dollar.
