New developments occurring for my research. The topic has shifted it's focus:
Peg is 40! questions place, personal and communal identity, and language.
By appropriating the text taken from a graffitied inscription on a bridge, and through story telling, the work explores the effect of the text upon the community inhabiting the surrounds of the site.
The work responds to the sense of place that is “Peg is 40!”, and focuses on addressing memory and identification (both personal and communal), as well as myth-making within local place through an engagement with appropriating the text, and exploring the language and landmark, as well as the surroundings of “Peg is 40!”
The project aims to encourage a dynamic engagement from viewers by challenging the semiotics of words and presenting an ambiguity in meaning for the text of the inscription, when abstracted from a definitive setting.

So much has been happening. I've recently started my Master of Fine Arts at Monash Uni, looking at Maps and deconstructing their components to become purely aesthetic. Potential mediums include paper sculpture, folded books, artists books, and works on paper, focussing on Printmedia, and paper alterations (perforations, folds, markings etc)
In other news:
As seen from the photos, a recently commissioned artwork on a door to do for a home in development in Prahran.
More to come- and hopefully more frequently.

When I was a young child dreaming of the prospective career paths to venture down, I always loved the concept of teaching, as it was a means of using the photocopier...
In my mature position of age I have come to realise that fun with a photocopier does not limit itself purely to the classroom.
This approaching Saturday is the the Zine Fair in the City Square as part of the Sticky Institutes annual Festival of the Photocopier.
I've got a stall there, so have been printing my little heart out in preparation.
Come check it out, it will be unreal banana peel.
