I KNOW HOW HARD IT CAN GET

I Know How Hard It Can Get is a multimedia installation that chronicles unemployment and welfare policy in contemporary Australia.

I Know How Hard It Can Get examines the relationship between authority and authenticity, co-optation and appropriation, and sympathy and contempt.
