As part of the Travelling Artist Residency at Watch This Space Phoebe Beard created a series of artworks based on her research into mineral exploitation in the Northern Territory. Using printed maps as stimulus Phoebe Beard located gold, magnesium, copper and uranium mines outside Alice Springs/Mparntwe. As a printmaker Phoebe held a series of workshops called ‘X Marks the Spot’ which granted participants with the opportunity to create their own personalised map or brochure. Phoebe Beard utilised the Watch This Space notice board to display and distribute her printed maps, to which indicated the economic and environmental impact of mineral exploitation in the Northern Territory Australia.
