ADELAIDE CITY LIBRARY – FRANCIS ST RESIDENCY – LAST DAYS



Trike at City Library 1 lo res copy

There have been so many great contributions to this project over the last couple of months, both in the form of drawings and in the form of suggestions that I have been able to translate into illustrated form. There is a big pile of great contributions still to be sorted through and developed.

THIS WEDNESDAY, THE 25TH OF MAY, FROM 3 – 7PM
WILL BE MY FINAL WORKSHOP SESSION AT THE ADELAIDE CITY LIBRARY

I look forward to visits from anyone who would still like to come along and have a chat or make a contribution to ‘Machines to Save a City’. During June we will be placing the wonderful fantasy trike in Francis Street where it will make it’s home for the next couple of months.

You can see a bunch of pics from the project at the following link.

ADELAIDE CITY LIBRARY – FRANCIS STREET RESIDENCY


2 Dodd Easel Rider CROP
The Adelaide City Library has had a number of artist residencies in the last couple of years. They aim to both engage their community of users, creatively, and develop outcomes that can invigorate their Francis Street entrance (just off of Rundle Mall). Over the next couple of months I will be working together with the City Library on a project that will result in a fantastic cargo tricycle that will make its home in Francis Street between June and August this year. The premise of my project is to engage the notion of ‘Ideas for machines to save a city’ (of which I believe a bicycle may be). Drawings, notes and ideas developed during workshop sessions will form the external embellishment of a structure that will be carried by the machine that I am making.

I will be hosting a series of public workshops at the City Library as part of the process.
Session times and further information can be viewed here-

FINE PRINT – ADVENTURE ART


Heysen Trail Tall Bike Adventure lo res

Thanks to the great team at fine print magazine for the invitation to contribute to their latest issue which approaches the theme of ‘place’. I have written a short piece that explores some of my sense of place, particularly ideas of exploring space, adventures, art and their possible intersections. This issue also features contributions from Jenna McKenzie (SA), Kate Moskwa (SA) and Sera Waters (SA).
