After 18 months of immersive work, Todd Fuller’s latest film, ‘How to raise a siren’, presents an imaginative tale that brings together two unlikely characters: a sea dugong (sirenia) and a boy. The hand drawn film was created using paint and charcoal — erasing, re-painting and drawing as to conjure movement in the resulting artworks. Drawing regularly at Sydney Sealife Aquarium, Fuller observed Sydney’s dugongs Waru and Pig, becoming acquainted with their gestures, mannerisms and movements.
