I take photos on my phone of things I see and spend days turning them into darkroom prints by printing, re-photographing and re-printing them. Access to the darkroom has been... extremely limited this year, so I have spent my time collecting and grouping images and attempting to articulate why I take and choose the photos that I use. Norbert Loeffler said that all art aspires towards the condition of music, and (I just looked this up) humans most probably enjoy music because pattern recognition releases dopamine. I am terrible at music so instead, I aspire to visual pattern making. A sprouting potato and a chandelier do not have much in common—but they look great together.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which our campus is situated, the people of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung, who have created art, made music and told their stories here for thousands of generations. We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
