Joe Hamilton makes use of technology and found material to create intricate and complex compositions that exist online, offline and in-between. His recent work questions established notions of landscape and environment within a society that is becoming increasingly networked. Hamilton’s work has been included in a number of group shows in Australia, Europe and North America.
