Melbourne-based artist Tim Hillier has been getting busy on the video front lately. His clips for local bands Total Control and Twerps show a willingness to experiment, which is not so evident in his intimate, considered still photography.

This playful side is taken further in his new installation work Loneliness of a long distance runner, showing at Melbourne's TCB gallery between March 28 and April 14. Through a three-screen moving collage, Tim pays homage to marathon legend Cliff Young. The work could also be interpreted as a tribute to anyone who chips away at their practice day after day, year after year – the journey its own reward.
