This blog post is about my forthcoming work at the Transreal Topologies exhibition, which will be held in conjunction with the International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) Symposium in Adelaide. At this exhibition, I will be presenting stage one of a new project titled Words for Water.

Background
Words for Water is a project that explores the life giving properties of water and its relationship to  humanity and the environment. The process for developing the content has involved using online social networks to gather the word for water in many languages, over 30 to date, including 8 Indigenous Australian languages.

A number of future works are currently in development, which will further build on the collaborative aspect of this project. Here is a link to a short video that is part of stage one and the Transreal Topologies exhibition.

Finding Balance : Mura Gadi

1 09 2013

It has been a really long time between blog posts, but I have had a good excuse. For the past few months, I have worked on an exhibition and publication – Finding Balance : Mura Gadi, which is now on at the Belconnen Arts Centre.

Here is some documentation of the show.

It has been a massive project and I have had so much help, especially from my husband Marty (Martin Drury), who has done heaps – from being a sounding board for ideas on design and layout of the publication, to patiently cutting all the mounts for the prints, to helping with the exhibition install. Catherine Summerhayes, Linda Carroli and Shannon Novak all contributed to the publication and many other wonderful peeps supported me on pozible, which was really fantastic.
