On Thin Ice

On Thin Ice is an arts-documentary collaboration between journalist and author Ginger Gorman, photographers Hilary Wardhaugh and Martin Ollman, sculptor Tom Buckland, and printmaker Jess Higgins that tells the stories of seven people who have been living with or recovering from addiction to crystal methamphetamine (ice).

Each artist worked closely and collaboratively with the participants to create work that reflects the impact of addiction, their challenges faced, and their hopes for the future through photography, sculpture, printmaking, audio recordings and the written word.

This project was commissioned by Tuggeranong Arts Centre (TAC) in 2019 in collaboration with journalist and author Ginger Gorman.
