Cameron Robbins is a male artist born in Australia, currently working in Australia.

Cameron’s work makes tangible the underlying structures and rhythms of natural forces. Over the last 20 years he has produced site-specific installations in art galleries, disused buildings and outdoor sites around Australia. These inquiries employ structural devices such as wind or ocean-powered mechanical systems. Their aesthetic is the result of both careful engineering and resourcefulness. The outputs of these site-specific installations include wind drawings and sound compositions. These interpretations of the dynamics and scale of the physical world suggest the complexities of the unknown.

Cameron is based in Melbourne and studied Fine Art (Sculpture) at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and the Victorian College of the Arts during the 1980s. He has lectured in Art is Public Space at RMIT since 2000. Most recently he was awarded The Contempora Sponsors Award and the Littoral Edge Award(2008).
