make the yuletide gay

Well, I apologise for a much belated and due post. Busy it seems I have been, but as I ask, "what exists to show for my distractions?", I cannot seem to find an answer.
The hybrid arts performance/installation was had, all good and well. Many a paper crane was tossed about, stood upon, and blown with the duck feathers across the creaking wooden floorboards of the Brunswick Street gallery as a body would brush past. The twigs and their hanging glass vessels swung, and cast their incredible shadows upon the crisp white walls of the gallery space.

Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong have been singing to me as I collate and wrap my {close to} final gifts for family members..... my parents, siblings, my partner, and his parents, siblings, step-parents, and step-siblings.... oh, so many people to enjoy the holiday season with.

May everyone have an incredible Christmas and New Year!

The Fold of the Paper Crane

It has been over a fortnight since I last left my mark on this page. Many apologies for my tardiness. I have been a busy bee however, in preparation for my next installation art display which will feature in a show called Absolute Necessity, that will be performed along with three other incredibly contemporary events at a HUGE week of nights for the creative collective of us who like to be referred to as Darlington Garage.

Please check it out! 8pm on Friday the 7th December through to Thursday the 13th of December {BUT EXCLUDING MONDAY NIGHT} at the Brunswick Street Gallery, on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy. Tickets are $10, there will be a bar open too. For tickets phone Clio on 0401 760 691.

For AbNec I have, after swiftly learning the basics of origami, been making a countless amount of paper cranes, hoarding pillows of duck feathers, and collecting branches to wrap and string vessels from.

I've had many helping hands learning the folds of the paper crane and adding their crafts to the looming mountain of {only recycled} paper. Thank you to Penny, Clio, Bazil, Ross, Nicky, Lou, Krista and those who I may yet still ask...THANKS.

To those in Melbourne today, enjoy the cool change. I'm back to more folding.
