Swags opening

Yesterday evening’s exhibition opening was a hit! Held at Black Penny in Surry Hills (a bar that carries some of the best Australian craft Whisky in Sydney), Myself and several other artists (including my notable partner Dayna) donated pieces for this event which are currently under silent auction in an effort to help raise funding & awareness of Swags for the Homeless.

The exhibition & silent auction runs from 14th – 20th October 2014 – Black Penny, 648 Bourke St, Surry Hills, Sydney

Captured 50 year anniversary exhibition

This years Captured exhibition is celebrating fifty years of photography at the Sydney Institute of Photography.

Thousands of ex students were invited to submit works for this event which in turn were anonymously submitted for selection by a panel of industry professionals and showcased at The Muse this Monday evening.

There was an amazing caliber of work on show and I was delighted to discover some of my own had been included.

Behind the scenes on Josh Harle’s Gamespace Project

Josh Harle’s Gamespace Project

“Gamespaces” is a photo-realistic recreation of Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art as a playable video game, complete with galleries filled with artworks. Visitors to the studio can check out the timelapse documentation of the reconstruction process and play the final game on a 42” crisp cinema 3D screen from the comfort of couches.

Here is a behind the scenes look into the project:

 

The first stage of this project was unveiled at the MCA’s artbar last week with stage two opening next week.

Josh Harle’s Emerging Topologies

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending Josh Harle‘s “Emerging Topologies” Exhibition.

Josh aproached me a while back asking for a little collaboration on one of his major pieces, I was blown away to find out it was a reconstruction of a support pylon for a monorail onto which he planned to print original details and graffiti with a photo sensitive emulsion. (and to 1:1 scale!)

So we got the ball running and Josh came out with this:

Something well larger than my current works. I have to say I am amazed.

All in all I’ve never quite seen someone explore places, shapes, ideas and architecture quite like this.

Josh’s exhibition runs until Saturday May 25th @ Kudos gallery Sydney for anyone looking to check it out.

“All stories are travel stories.

The spaces we inhabit are becoming progressively more legible through ubiquitous access to Google Maps and GPS navigation, introducing new types of travel story and new types of space. Emerging Topologies explores the shifting landscape of a city experienced through mobile mapping technology, and sketches out its own improbable paths through the shadows.

Informed by his previous research degree in Computer Science, Josh Harle has created a series of software tools to map, scan, and visualise the city in contingent, poetic ways, in spite of the rationalising imperative of geo-locative technology. The works tell tales: compiling unreadable maps of journeys through strange cities, and taking playful, winding trips across the smudged face of the reference map.” – Josh Harle
