REPORT |Projects: Fieldworking and Long Time, No See?

October 16, 2014


This week I completed, to full draft, the Fieldworking project, which was funded by the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council. Fieldworking was intended as a year-long art writing project that would topologically and topographically examine public art and cultural space. In a general sense, this is what I am referring to by the […]

CONFERENCE | Design as caring in an urban world

January 10, 2014


I quite liked this call for papers (RGS 2014 Conference) as it succinctly and thoughtfully – even carefully – captures some interleaving of design and care (as care). It’s in keeping with some of the terrain covered during the Long Time, No See? Project. The questions are particularly important for reflecting on the project’s trajectory […]

WRITING | Questions and questioning

July 31, 2013


I’m trying to order my thoughts about the Long Time, No See? project and experience, particularly the interrelated processes of writing and participation. At some point, I am will need to contribute to some writing and/or documentation that reveals the ‘research’ trajectory and the nature of the artistic inquiry. Interrogating this from time to time, […]

COMMUNITY | Projects, Networks, Connections

May 12, 2013


With several workshop and presentation events marked in the Long Time, No See? Project’s diary, I’ve been giving some thought to various ideas informing the project and how we can make the most of them for our conversations with others. While letting my mind wander this morning, I started to join some more dots between […]

TEST | A Long Walk for Long Time, No See?

March 28, 2013


This week has presented a window of opportunity to test the Long Time, No See? Project’s mobile device functionality. Following from our Aspley walkshop on Saturday, attended by an energetic group of 10, the project team has ventured out to further test and refine the web interface. The next iteration of this and the app […]

REFLECT | Long Time, No See? Project

March 25, 2013


Long Time, No See? is an art project and artwork that is concerned with futuring, which as Tony Fry argues demands that we face an imperative for change, a need to tell a new story. In part the old story is characterised by the project’s Artistic Director, Keith Armstrong, as “the storm we call progress” […]

REFLECT | Walking, Raining, Tracing

March 23, 2013


This week the Long Time, No See? project team was testing and readying the web interface/app thingy for the walkshop in Aspley. It’s been a massive effort with a little heartbreak along the way. John and I also ventured into the field for testing running the web interface on my mobile phone and referring to […]

READ | Pathways and wayfaring

March 15, 2013


For my current research on Fieldworking, I am reading various works on walking. Several tabs are open on my browser as I flip between key texts to develop the framework for the project: Art of Fieldwork, Mental Maps, Ways of Walking … This morning, and pursuant to my earlier post about pathways, sites and territories, […]

PAST | Reading the landscape

March 12, 2013


I’m writing at the meeting point of a few writings and threads, including my current immersion in revising the workshop for Long Time, No See? for which I’m addressing the recognition of traditional owners and this has triggered some connections … Aspley is located in the traditional territories of the Turrbal people who occupied the […]

RESEARCH | Territories & Pathways

March 7, 2013


Here are some extracts from research completed for Aboriginal and Cultural Heritage Assessments produced last year. Over a few projects, I endeavoured to consider the interweave of geography and history with a view to recognising that sites alone are not representative of the Aboriginal view of land and culture. In fact, I think a focus […]
