Dix is the portrait of palmist and dog trainer, Dix and her beloved dog, Jesse. A local of the Sutherland Shire, Dix once lived with and cared for Ben and Hazel Broadhurst, a local couple who bequeathed their cottage to the Sutherland Council which formed Hazelhurst Regional Art Gallery in Gymea, NSW. Murphy made contact with Dix during a residency at Hazelhurst in 2010. In this single channel video, Dix shares her knowledge and experience of ghosts, psychic phenomena, reincarnation and her love and respect for dogs. The interview is interspersed with an audio recording of a palm reading by Dix of Murphy's palms.
