Nearly ten years ago I wrote a zine called Digging. It was about some old road blocks that had been left in Callan Park, and SCA, and Kirkbride, and my grandparents in Ireland, and ancient monuments, and sadness, and Laika the space dog, and other things.
Last year I learned to ride a motorbike, and with this new mobility I visited Callan Park for the first time in a long time, and kept going back there. I took photos and spent some time writing my thoughts down. I kept finding myself thinking about a lot of the same things the first Digging was about, so I decided to make a second issue.

This is the final weekend of Fully Automated Dexter Fletcher at 55 Sydenham Rd Gallery, Marrickville NSW 2204 AU. Members of Dexter Fletcher will be in attendance on both Saturday and Sunday, if you fancy a visit. We have made a game that you can play to make your very own Dexter Fletcher artwork.
Thanks to the Sticky Institute and 55 Sydenham Rd for everything you do.
Fully Automated Dexter Fletcher (Beta Version)
55 Sydenham Rd Marrickville NSW 2204 AU
2/2/2018 – 18/2/2018
Fully Automated Dexter Fletcher is an enquiry into the basic philosophy of games. Is it possible to create a set of rules that can be followed in order to produce work indistinguishable from Dexter Fletcher’s existing artworks?
Dexter Fletcher is a mysterious revolutionary feminist art gang, current membership two.
Dexter Fletcher is a conscious attempt to recover the cooperative, non-commercial motivations of childhood and/or amateur art-making practices, and is also an investigation as to how these motivations may anticipate a post-capitalist society.
