“There are no inherent limitations to the medium. There are just differences.”
Off to see Bill Henson’s show with the Australian Chamber Orchestra at the Opera House today. Taking Cyan and Natalie. Am looking forward to immersing myself in his work for a couple of hours. It must be an amazing thing to be able to put together. I played with performance art at art school. I used slides, hand coloured them, and projected them in a dark room to music. Was it any good? Don’t remember honestly. Julie Brown Rrap, my teacher did like it. I wonder if I have the slides still.
Art school foundation course. The joy of experimentation in a safe space.
So you can see why I am excited. A favourite artist. An amazing orchestra. A one off event. A feast of the senses.
To have an opportunity like that. Am in awe. Hoping one day people will credit my work as important. To be able to create events at such a scale. Hmmmm…
