Polly Stanton’s practice utilizes photography and the temporal mediums of video and sound to investigate cinemas power to shape and reflect human experiences of place and environment. Stanton’s work employs duration, cinematic codes, and landscape to consider the intersection between the spaces of film and the spaces of geography.
In addition to her art practice she has worked professionally in the film and television industries in post production sound and screenwriting. Based in Melbourne, she holds a Masters in Fine Art from RMIT and teaches video and sound at Swinburne University. She is currently a practice-based PhD candidate at RMIT University.
