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.
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.

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.

I made this birthday invite for my Mum. I know that it's a lot like those funny cards you can buy with those 50s caricature women making wry jokes about men and housework (which actually crack me up, ha! I'm such a dag. Men! Can't live with'em... ;) but I knew it would be perfect for my Mother. A bit wacky and humorous. I know it looks like a 5 minute graphic design job but finding the image was an arduous task. I was searching for the perfect image for THREE HOURS. Typing in "50's + women + cheesecake (it's what the models were called!?)" comes up with some highly inappropriate imagery. Ah the mysteries of google searching.
