These are the things that hold me here (a house, a vessel, a shell, a ring)



A wire piece I made years ago.
This formed part of my Masters folio.
The title for this work:
These are the things that hold me here ( a house, a vessel, a shell, a ring)

Not only our memories, but the things we have forgotten are "housed". Our soul is an abode. And by remembering "houses" and "rooms", we learn to "abide" within ourselves.

Yellow


From a while ago when I needed to look at some yellow when I worked.

Northcity4's Indoor Plant Project

Northcity4 is involved in a competition with the Bank of Melbourne, where the winner will get $10000 to support their individual project - http://bit.ly/1y4Lvi2
Our project is under Environment.
We are in third place and the deadline is next Tuesday, 21 October. 
This money will allow us to establish an indoor 'forrest' to improve the air quality within the studio as well as the working environment for our community.
Voting is simple and we would love it if you could take the time to vote for our project.





Many thanks!



Shaun Tan has provided these two beautiful illustrations to support our cause:

Honesty

Making art has first of all to do with honesty. My first lesson was to see objectively, to erase all ‘meaning’ of the thing seen. Then only, could the real meaning of it be understood and felt.
