Artist's statement

Luke Doolan, Oscar-nominated film director and co-founder of Blue-Tongue Films, is shown here in his natural creative habitat. Doolan likes the Infinite Monkey Theorem, which suggests that monkeys randomly banging on typewriters for an infinite amount of time would eventually produce the works of Shakespeare or Hollywood (as also famously tested by Mr Burns in 'The Simpsons'). In this photograph, the same idea is applied for the Australian film industry – which meant only one monkey was afforded and at mates' rates! Special thanks to Toby & Pete, Debbie Muller, Emma Woods and Pascale Roux de Bezieux. Producer: Anne Robinson
