Kellerberrin comes to Sydney!

stapling the blog together

If you are standing in the Sir Hermann Black Gallery reading this blog, welcome!

Feel free to use this computer to:

  • read the blog (although you’ll get tired standing up so you might as well compile a take-home copy)
  • record responses, comments and feedback
  • check your email or whatever
  • see pictures of the blog being compiled in the gallery

While you’re here, compile your own copy to take home thusly:

  1. start over to your far left around the corner
  2. slip on a handy “thimblette” – it makes it easier to grab the pages, and that way you don’t have to lick your finger
  3. pick up a copy of each of the pages one by one, starting from the coloured cover and ending over at the far right with the coloured back cover
  4. tap all the pages gently to neaten the pile when you reach the end of the production line
  5. use the old fashioned staple machine to bind your copy of the blog together – gently press down on the foot pedal when you have your booklet in position
  6. If you are lucky enough to find Lucas in the gallery (at the opening, he’s the one wearing the striking Kellerberrin Volunteer Fire Brigade outfit) he’ll be happy to personally sign your book for you.
  7. oh, and don’t forget to put $5.00 in the jar*, grab a “minty” and return your thimblette to the receptacle provided

*There is a 20% discount for student union members. The Sir Hermann Black Gallery is run by the student union, and it looks like the whole voluntary student unionism thing will mean this great space will be outta commission by the end of the year. For more on that issue, try here or here

envy/pity? questions from Monica…

Filed under: analysis? — Lucas @ 8:39 am

These questions are great. They come from Monica and Grant, Keller locals. Monica wrote a comment to say she’d “wasted” a whole saturday afternoon reading the blog. I think she found it to be a guilty pleasure. She wrote “I have found it very interesting how you observe our little town, as I think when you live here you tend to stop noticing the ‘nice, little things’.”

And so, onto her questions:

Flow and The Artists Way (a question from Jasmin, & Lucas’ response.)

Filed under: analysis? — Lucas @ 12:45 pm

This question came thru from Jasmin, who I work with at the MCA. As far as I know, she read this blog in its paper format rather than online.
I presented a talk at the MCA as part of a forum Jasmin organised for the Situation exhibition. In this talk I showed the blog on a data projector and talked briefly about the idea of durational (but non-exhausting) daily exercise as a method of art making.
Here’s her question…

Code of ethics? (a question from Donna & an answer from Lucas)

Filed under: analysis? — Lucas @ 12:44 pm

The challenging questions are trickling in…

I received the following email from Donna, from Notre Dame Uni, who brought out the medical students to Kellerberrin during my visit. Donna was an avid blog reader, often chiming in with sage advice and fact-checking, for instance during the great water-potability debate
Here’s her question:
