Summary

Empty is a collection of photographs by Melbourne artist Julie Shiels taken from her home on the 20th floor in Melbourne's CBD. The works capture the stillness and other worldliness of these workplaces when the humans have left the room. The absence of human presence amplifies activities occurring behind the glass facades, turning the focus onto the furniture, tools, technology and personal paraphernalia that populate these spaces, and inviting a reflection on the nature of work. Empty seeks to remind us that things continue to exist even when they slip from view. -Publisher's website.
