In Hold Me, a sound work for 2020 Adelaide//International by Anglo-Australian and Narungga First Nations artist Brad Darkson, listeners are invited to listen in on a frustrated phone conversation between Darkson’s family and a Centrelink worker trying to unravel the ramifications of a robo-debt.

How long the listener waits – and to what end – is a part of this experiment in patience and frustration with systemic architectures highlighting the divide between domestic and bureaucratic identities.
