Master of Arts in Visual Arts (Griffith University) What is a home? How do different people relate to a home? Is it bricks and mortar? An investment? Or is it an atmosphere? Is it a combination of good company, smells and sounds that evoke a feeling of comfort? Lucy Lippard’s interpretation of how we convert a space to place struck a chord with me in her comment that ‘a lived in landscape becomes a place, which implies intimacy; a once-lived in landscape can be a place, if explored, or remain a landscape, if simply observed.’ (Lure of the Local 1997, 9). With a background in architectural design and much of my life spent on the move through living arrangements and travel, these are burning questions. My Master of Arts in Visual Arts thus began with an exploration of this theory at its core, expanding on my practice as a fine artist from paper based techniques such as drawing, watercolour, printing and photography (analogue and digital) into a public art context. Moving from two-dimensional to three-dimensional form and creating artwork that took into account my architectural design background and engaging with specific contexts and communities.

The installation consists of a mobile projector, video projections and performance. The mobile projector is a second-hand trishaw that I had refurbished and modified to provide electricity on the go for the projections and accompanying music. The project culminated in a site-specific public artwork located at Urban Climb, West End – a popular rock climbing venue in Brisbane.

Catalyst Church - Ipswich The Catalyst Church refurbishment in Ipswich honoured the heritage of this site, it’s body and soul, by thoughtfully reworking an existing metal foundry to create a community space including a cafe for parishioners. I was contracted by Smith Architest Pty Ltd to provide elements within the site that would tie the different areas of the buildings together and provide a warm but dynamic element to the architectural refurbishments. This comprised of a screen and wallpaper design. Looking at the body of the building and it’s relationship to the church as a physical shelter. Observing the way the roof openings filtered light through perforations and provided shade and reinterpreting this as a panel design for another sheltering device - the screens. The silo at the core of the church (see following pages) - its’ literal and metaphorical heart serves as a reminder of the reason for the buildings existence. The image created for the wallpaper design is taken from the inside of this silo and is an opportunity to honour the building’s past life while drawing on this parallel in terms of the role of the church in its community - it’s soul. Photographs shown are from the well attended opening in August this year where many from the community expressed their delight and enjoyment of the upgrades and new facilities.

revit

Introduction to CAD - Griffith University Whilst completing my Master of Arts in Visual Arts at the Queensland College of Art I was required to take two electives in conjunction with my main project and core studies. I chose to undertake a semester course in REVIT at the beginning of 2015 in readiness for jobsearching later this year. Provided here are some samples included as part of the third and final project of the semester. If you would like more information on my REVIT capabilities, please feel free to contact Philip Bugden (Peddle Thorp) who was my instructor - p.bugden@peddlethorp.com.au.

photographydigital Heritage Found Photographic Exhibition ‘Heritage Found’ began as a mapping project instigated earlier this year by myself when it was made clear to the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) that there appeared to be a lack of clear information available readily in visual format to the general public on the overlap of heritage listings within Brisbane at a State and Local Government level.


copyright Tim Nemeth (courtesy of the BLHN) - 2014


Heritage Found Photographic Exhibition After the confusion surrounding the lack of heritage listing on Hotpoint House, O’Reilly’s Bonded Stores and the Free Stores Building (recently removed from Margaret Street), steps were taken by volunteers to correct this oversight. A plan was developed for an ongoing mapping project that would use Google Maps to overlay heritage listed sites within Brisbane along with those of interest to the National Trust. In this way, providing clear links for the general public and visitors to our city, the wonderful array of heritage sites available for exploration. Also highlighting any buildings of heritage value that have been overlooked by Brisbane City Council. The ‘Heritage Found’ Exhibition was a natural follow on from this project with the need for photographs documenting the sites to be added to the map. Focusing on the Brisbane CBD, photographers were invited to explore the city creatively using the mapping project as a guide. This exhibition forms the resulting culmination of the photographic explorations by myself and fellow photographer, Chris Dunbar. The exhibition was shown in the basement of National Trust House (95 William Street, Brisbane) during Brisbane Open House in 2014. The Brisbane Living Heritage Network also used the exhibition as an event to co-launch their 2014 heritage guide.

photographyanalogue ‘Blueprints’ exhibition held at the Baber Studio, from Friday 29th August to 20th September 2014.

myrtle street studio Myrtle Street Studio was an independent ARI (Artist Run Initiative) which opened to the public in early 2010. Situated within the Grange (Brisbane), it incorporated a gallery space, specialist book/print store and artist studio including a photography lab and two printing presses. This was located in a refurbished worker’s cottage (my home was located above). The design and construction was completed during 2009 in conjunction with Smith Architects. Specifically initiated to fill a gap in Brisbanes’ current art scene, Myrtle Street Studio represented student and emerging artists who work primarily in print and paper-based media. My aim was to provide a professional yet accessible contemporary art space for the local community. Regular by-monthly exhibitions were held and at the time I completed commisions and taught from this space as well as at the Brisbane Institute of Art.

The following photographs are from the official opening by Cr Fiona King (Marchant). If you would like to view more exhibitions - flickr.com/photos/myrtlestreetstudio/ If you would like to read a little more on MSS - myrtlestreetstudio.wordpress.com
