Mt Jim – Cameron Robbins




Image: Cameron Robbins C-type prints about to be mounted at CF yesterday.  Cameron is exhibiting the works as part of the ‘Composing Common Ground’

group exhibition at the Town Hall Gallery in Hawthorn in August (curated by Kent Wilson).  For more info take a look here!


A massive unknown submerged object causes this basalt formation, “Mt. Jim”, in remote north-east Victoria, Australia, to have a magnetic anomaly – very noticable 20 degree magnetic compass variation. Trying to visualize these abstract 3D magnetic forms on site, I used compass, measurements, markers, lighting, and long exposure photographic ‘night drawings’. From this on site action came a series of hand drawings, maps and diagrams, and sculptural works.
