Lucky enough to spy tickets to Bjork Digital Dj set for the 2016 Vivid Festival just minutes after their announcement via the Carriageworks Twitter feed, I was tapping away at the ticketing page quicker than you can say ‘no you have bills to pay.’ It’s Bjork; to hell with the financial repercussions. Thus I flew…

No comments

Australian photographer Kelly Hammond is stepping outside ‘the system’ and quite literally, into the wild unknown. With her project ‘Women Of the Wild,’ she is exploring what it means to reconnect with the feminine energy of the natural world, and is doing so by traversing the lines between male and female, natural and constructed, and by challenging…

If you aren’t…

daffodils: review

Bridget Conway
No comments

We have recently been hit with the difficult news that arts funding for small to medium arts organisations, especially ones that help young people and emerging creatives, has been slashed. The already lacklustre monetary distribution to the arts in Australia is now seriously dwindling and in danger. So, what are we to do? We keep…

a man walks into a bar: review

Bridget Conway
No comments

Sydney’s Kings Cross was once a happening party district, but with the lock-out laws still in place, late-night boozing just isn’t a thriving business any longer. Kings Cross is now almost a ghost town, and the city itself is in need of new and exciting ways to keep the party going. This is why, I…

review: speak uneasy and flood

Jacqui Malins
No comments

In the front window of Smith’s Alternative, a person is being eaten – or coughed out – by typewriters of varied vintage.  I recognise the face of artist Nicci Haynes, eyes closed, contorted into expressions of fear or outrage. She spits binary code as she is rolled into existence by these machines. Uneasy indeed, these…

Blancmange Productions has done it again with their 2016 season opener The Punter’s Siren, on now until March 5th at The World Bar in Sydney.

Inspiring young jewellery designer Lili Murphy-Johnson has created a stir with the unveiling of her first collection of pieces. Why, you ask? Because Lili’s jewellery is designed to reduce the stigma of menstruation by presenting itself as a no holds-barred collection of works that imitate the real-life stains and emotions that are involved in menstruation….
