Concrete Casting

Working for Janet McGaw has been such a great experience.  Not only is she an incredible 
architect and academic, but she is always working on a myriad of interesting projects.  Her latest residential project has been for a wonderful client and I have been lucky enough to work on this with her.  

The Eggs

Some friends of mine from Moop Jaw were working on a clip for the band The Holidays and asked me to help them out with some of the sets.  The song was called Golden Sky and the concept required some magical eggs to be made.  These eggs had to be large, smooth (so no papier mache...) with a marbled pattern on them and able to be sturdy enough to be pushed off the edge of a building.

Indigenous Place-Making Symposium

Photo by Louis Porter
A couple of months ago I did some work with the University of Melbourne to help out on a very important symposium on the practises, processes and politics of Indigenous place-making.  I was taking photos of the speakers and attendants and was also fortunate enough to be able to sit in on the event.  Creating an indigenous place in Melbourne is such an important and complex undertaking and it is something I am not even going to attempt to explain with my limited knowledge and understanding of the subject.  But it is something I would like people to know about and perhaps also try and find out about.  I wasn't able to put any of the pictures I took up on this blog but I have attached a link here about the event and what it entailed for those that are interested.
