I am currently in the process of reformatting/funky'fing my blog at the moment, so if you notice some awkward formatting shizznit, please be patient with me - I'm noticing it too!
In my last few recent posts I kind of hinted to some things that have been taking up my moodmind.. rock icons, romantic artists, weird 80s clips.. but there's been more! MORE!
I've been running around town with a Sydney artist collective called Punk Monk Propaganda, who are good friends of mine. We do liquid lighting and arty things at events, so that's been taking up most of my time and my school nights - much to father's dismay.
We recently did an installation at Sydney Verge festival last week, we did liquid lighting at the opening night and have an installation up for about 3 weeks! We were given a shipping container and free reign on what we wanted to plant inside of it, and here was the finished product- a shot I snapped before we hung around some more lace bits around the walls.
I've also been re-doing my room, I've put up plenty of serge gainsbourg and patti smith (that i'll photograph later) - additionally I posted up this image by Carrol Jerrums above my bed
I absolutely love it, and it does well in intimidating unwelcome guests.. (greasy teenage boys that my mother tries to set me up with)
Speaking of Miss Jerrums, I remember seeing a photography exhibition of her work last April at the Sydney Museum and I've been meaning to make a post dedicated to her photography for a while now- maybe in the not-too-distant future!
Thinking about her has also reminded me that I need to get back on my art-exhibition bicycle, that I've put to rest for a while now.. I guess I've just been so busy being behind the art - that I actually haven't had a chance to visit any exhibitions!
ALSO IT IS FINALLY SPRING!!1111 Which not only means my birthday next week! The 14th, SAWEET SIXTEEN- but also festival season! In September and November particularly, each suburb in Sydney puts on a festival each weekend filled with either crafts or music or art or BOTH ALL TOGETHER. It's a really exciting time to be in Sydney, and not only it is my favourite season (and my birthday month) but also it's just so nice to see communities working together to present their suburbs. My favourite is fringe festival which kicks off in the middle of September till November - which is limited to the inner-west, but is so so great for representing underground arts talent. There is just so much more to write, including all the movies/books and music that I've been keeping my high-school mind occupied with, and I'm sure I'll get this posting shtick back on track.
Till next time
