one of my parcels has arrived!

  What was starting to feel like a mirage has suddenly become material again with a box of dirty clothes, 800 photographs, some cyanotypes, a dozen books and a pile of postcards and long forgotten photocopies have finally turned up!

in transit

  Hong Kong stopover. Marvellous ghostly mountain profiles until you realise that its actually daylight and you can’t see them because of the pollution.

last day

  Finally pull the last zip shut and vacate my room and the studio. Sad goodbyes to as many people as I can find. I have bequeathed as many possessions as possible including the holy bucket. Can’t stand waste! Enough time to go down to Cascade Gardens for some more photography and then to the […]

to place

  The library here has a copy of To place (III) lava by Roni Horn in their artists book collection. I spend some time looking at this as well as the Janet Cardiff sound walk CD. Madly packing. Sent a tube home with the large prints and drawings in it.

Cave and Basin and Halloween

  Fantastic day photographing at the Cave and Basin. Fumaroles and miraculous water flowing out of the ground. Everybody’s costumes of the Halloween party were great. The party though was cut to the heart by Trudi breaking her leg. A painful accident made worse by somebody’s stupid boyfriend who accidentally kicks Trudi’s broken leg whilst […]

Kay Burns, Sorrel Muggeridge and Laura Nanni

  Met with sound and walking artist Kay Burns (of the Ministry of Walking). A show of works and some plans for work in the future. Walked Sorrel and Laura’s project about following directions. A flip of a coin determines whether we go with Laura and follow Sorrel’s directions or vice versa. I walk with […]

open studio

  At the very last minute a track from the geophone recording ready for use. We edit the loudest bits down so the speaker doesn’t blow and then play it in the 4-story silo stairwell. It’s ready with a few minutes to go — a subwoofer vibrates 20 metre long waves of sound. And then […]

your inner Flaneur

  A walk by the Ministry of Walking A spoof on management training programs. Cooperation, Negotiation and ??? Being tied into a rope line like they did with prisoners. Made me think of Aboriginal prisoners straight away. That black and white image of chained bodies heading for the oblivion of a faded photograph. Having your […]
