All Circles Vanish in Melbourne

December 14, 2011

Just a quick heads up that the video Anwyn and me made at the beginning of the year called All Circles Vanish is screening in the foyer of the City Library, Melbourne, until the 22nd of December. More details on their website. If you are in Melbourne, you can go and look at it. Won’t that be fun!

Also, on the 10th and 12th of January I will be hosting zine workshops in Blacktown City libraries, the first at Stanhope Gardens and the second at Mt Druitt. Here’s their website with more details. Vanessa Berry will also be hosting a final workshop on the 18th of January at Max Webber library, Blacktown. (Thanks again Vanessa!)

While I’m at it, someone has written a post on the National Library’s ephemera collection blog about the project Anwyn and me coordinated way back in the mid 00s, Post No Bills. It is good and has good pictures of the PNB Fun Pack, which is very good, because I am ungood at documenting my own work. I’m shit at it, in fact.

So, I know you’re all dying to know why I haven’t posted here in a while, right. Well actually, I spend my whole day posting. Posting other peoples’ mail. That’s right, I got a job at the post office. I’M IN CHARGE OF THE POST. It’s feels as though I have fulfilled some sort of destiny, the culmination of years spent in retail finally merges with years of sending people crap in the mail. Today I was inducted into the Code of Ethics guidelines for the use of social media which states the importance of never saying a bad word against your employer on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, blogs. Would I ever complain about my job? When have I ever done that…

STAY TUNED.

All Circles Vanish

Final post for the day: here is All Circles Vanish, the film, by myself and Anwyn.

Streetware stuff again

March 1, 2011

Here are some snaps I took of the All Circles Vanish installation.

I was just whinging to a friend about how down I am on blogs at the moment, and realise that I haven’t been doing much with this thing other than post announcements. Maybe that’s ok. Though today I did scribble out a very long, potentially stupid (haven’t re-read it yet) essay about discovering lyrics from The Fall and Rudimentary Peni in the writing of HP Lovecraft (or, rather, discovering the writing of HP Lovecraft in the lyrics of The Fall and Rudimentary Peni) and general musings on perverse introspection (my own included); BUT, I suspect that the audience interested in reading such things is not also reading this blog, so I shall refrain from posting it here. I’ll probably make it a zine, and then no one will have to read it, but I can still pretend I’ve done something wonderfully productive and creative. Solution!

Whenever I see the name ‘HP Lovecraft’ I think of HP sauce, and whenever I pass a bollard on the street I think of JG Ballard. Isn’t that just how the weird works? Everyday objects start to take on a sinister aspect…

So anyway, those snaps:

The film, as installed in the space on Alberta St. Hopefully we will get the full thing up on the internets soon.

Paste-ups in Nithsdale Lane (the bottom one was taken by Anwyn, and yes, is upside down. Whoops).

The film has been deinstalled, but the paste-ups are still there (well, those that haven’t been ripped down and urinated on by drunks), and there they will remain (until they are ripped down and urinated on by drunks).

Also, I highly recommend that you check out Kat Smolynec’s work, which is next to be installed in the pop-up space. She’s having an opening tomorrow night. That’s:

Wednesday 2nd March Edit: Wednesday 9th March!

Streeware Pop-up Gallery, 21 Alberta St Sydney.

The show will feature her trademark giant flannelette Babushka dolls, which represent her Ukranian heritage and Westie upbringing.

And I think she just has a thing for flannies.

Now, go forth and look at stuff.
