Since returning from the Bird Lab Residency is Sweden I have been deep in lantern land.
First the Lismore Lantern Parade
This year we celebrated the 20th anniversary of this fabulous event.
INTO THE LIGHT – Cycles of Change.
This was the 4th year for INTO THE LIGHT, which started in response to the 2009 Black Saturday fires. Each year we have reflected on the process of healing and with a group of local artists,designed an event in response to where the community is at now.
It is a very special event. I feel privileged to be part of it
This years video is still in process but here are the last 2 years.
Between Land and Sky
The Unfolding Story
And now that lantern season is over
I have time to return to my studio.
This started with a shift from studio 2.14 which has been my home for the last 2 years to Studio 2.26 across the hall. (At River Studios in West Melbourne which is run my City of Melbourne’s Creative Spaces program)
A chance to dust of the dust and re look at everything that i have gathered or done or thought about doing. I now have a wooden floor, 2 white walls and a square space rather than a rectangle.
So i sat in it today
and stared at all the projects
started, played with , begun, thought about
for me to start, return to , finish, begin , complete, start,
So many threads and ideas
how do they inter link?
Do they inter link?
Is it all one creative journey ?
Or separate threads heading in opposite directions?
So I picked up some clay (my newest thread)
and blocked out the questions
and let my fingers play
