Wake Up, Freak Out - then Get a Grip from Leo Murray on Vimeo.
This is a film called Wake Up, Freak Out - then Get a Grip by Leo Murray. Does it explain or hinder? Does it paralyse or promote action? Rhetoric or persuasion? I liked the poor man carrying the fat man with the tv set -- exactly whose carrot is it as they go over the cliff?
The film hints that it is more than individual consumption that needs changing but other than this does not go out to propose overly specific solutions (but see the tiny people at the end, though).
Currently working with audio/visual/performance technical expert Simon Wise to create a 5.5 m x 5.5 m grid of spatial sound. Cusp is an indoor spatial sound piece as part of The Sixth Shore project. We needed a big space and were very lucky to secure a pop-up artist in residence at the blend(er) gallery in Joondalup.
Also on display are some work in progress drawings and prints and a sample of some sound art walking -- ideas and media that I am exploring as part of The Sixth Shore. If you are nearby then pop in for a look at blend(er) Tuesday through to Friday, from 10am to 2pm until Friday 4 May.
(or join us at 10am Friday 27 April for morning tea for an informal talk about the project and artworks).
CUsp is gallery-based spatial sound work. Sound will move through different speakers in a sequence similar to the way waves come up a beach before washing back out into the sea. It will be exhibited in Adaptation (6 May to 10 June at INQB8).
