I would like to thank my supervisors Marsha Berry and Lyndal Jones for their insight, advice and encouragement. This project has benefited greatly from your guidance.

I would also like to thank RMIT for the support of a PhD and Research Masters Scholarship (RPS), which has made this work possible. The project has been further enriched by funding from RMIT’s School of Media and Communication and School of Graduate Research, which has enabled me to experiment more broadly with my methods.

I thank my good friend Mark Hampton for his invaluable assistance in customizing the functionality and design of this website. Mark, I am so grateful for your generosity, creativity, enthusiasm, attention to detail and patience. Thank you also for your friendship and support as I have negotiated the ups and downs of this journey.

I thank Robin for the laneways, including (perhaps especially) the ones that only exist at twilight.

And I respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people as the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which this project has unfolded, and with which it is deeply engaged.
