Lie on the bed of answers.

Lie on the bed of answers.

I like most artists Don’t trust myself. I believe in what has failed I trust what doesn’t work. Feels wrong, looks bad, give up. I cry. I go to sleep and beg my dreams solve the world. The irony is… I am attempting to Yes Show you my dreams. The way shadows make sense to […]

Personally, life has been kicking me in my metaphorical testicles so the stress has compounded with trying to balance life and making. This showing is an opportunity to get feedback from peers and deeply respected members of the […]


Déjà vu

Déjà vu

  I would always dream I was the rabbit…   Déjà vu – I believe it is that moment when your dreams come true, even though I know it’s just an impression.     IMGs found on weheartit.com  


Navigating, navigating

Navigating, navigating

Think I’m more of a dog person, and I also don’t knit, but Toby is expressing quite succinctly where I’m at in the process. Slightly droopy and bewildered. Onto editing at the moment! Which means more things will invariably show. (Cater to my needs, world.) Yay.

When you put a seashell to your ear, the sound you hear is of your own blood surging in your viens… not the ocean at all. But it is nice to imagin… That it is an ocean…

Trapped in the (under)belly of the beast.

Applespiel perform ‘Awful Literature is Still Literature I Guess’ at the 2012 Underbelly Arts Festival, Cockatoo Island. Artslab Work-In-Progress showing happened, chewed me up, sucked me dry, and spat me out onto Cockatoo Island to work with Applespiel on a little piece about disappointing books. We’ve debriefed the first phase of Artslab as a whole […]
