We hung up some of the Jon Campbell work commissioned by the Melbourne Art Fair for a photo shoot last week.
Loved the images of the newspaper photographer getting Jon up on the printing tables for the shots, the photographer striking poses, everyone oblivious - getting on with their work, even Jon seems unimpressed.
Images from the studio recording the State of Design workshop to coincide with our current exhibition project the Aesthetics of Saving at spacecraft south.
Great group, very motivated to get their transformations completed. We could have done with a couple of dedicated screen washers, more time to talk about what was made, a bit more time for woodwork activities...
Very worthwhile experience, I feel the participants will have expanded their vocabulary in the area of print and would be able to return with more confidence when the idea / opportunity arises.
Fun to give spacecraft fans the opportunity to select their favourite designs and pull ink through screens like Peppercorn, architectural dots, St Marks... and to go home with a one off spacecraft object. Tess McCabe won a place on the workshop courtesy of the The Design Files, thanks Lucy.
I'm now looking at the feasibility / demand for regular workshops.
Photos sort of showing spacecraft's contribution to the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. I'll ask Clara to take some better images and perhaps a film documentation. That would mean I'd have to figure out how to put a film up on the blog. Watch this space.
Our short film has a punchline, worth having a look at the street, it's up until the 19th July.
Working on the The Aesthetics of Saving show today for State of Design. Ban on new ideas, all thinking limited to the projects we've already started. Worked on the strapping for the stripped back chair. Jeannette finished all the patchwork and Jonathan has already started the upholstery for the pair of the transformed chairs.
Adam's in tomorrow evening, so we're on track. Starting to think about the installation, the image(s) for the billboard, the garments for the workshop, getting the invites out for the opening, which means I'm on track.
