Tarin Porter – Platform Vertigo


Having spent much of my time moving around in the past few years, I became interested in the idea of humanising the often-ubiquitous spaces I passed through such as trains and waiting areas. Themes of isolation, belonging and uncertainty were prominent in my paintings as I completed my honours degree during the 2020 Melbourne lockdowns.

I also connected these works to my experience of diabetes, exploring the isolating effects of public misunderstandings of often-invisible chronic illnesses and investigating the connections between diabetes, anxiety and altered perceptions of space.

Platform Vertigo (2020) is part of a series of works that I photographed as temporary interventions in public space to explore the idea of partial belonging to a place. It takes inspiration from locations including the Royal Exhibition Building and RMIT University campus.
