‘A YEAR OF TIME 30:1’ new work by Bridget Kennedy, 6 – 23 December 2017

BY Bridget Kennedy | 30-Oct-2017
‘A Year Of Time 30:1’ is a physical manifestation of the observation of the passing of one calendar year, highlighting the labour of the handmade. A log of the minutes taken to stitch each object was kept, and a small silver disc with these details was stamped and attached to each object, every minute representing 30 minutes of time in a calendar year. Created from natural fibres and recycled plastic bags, primarily sourced from her home environment, the work is process driven, with each object evolving in relation to the previous one. The individual objects can then be ‘purchased’ by exchanging either the equivalent amount of time or in monetary currency, the number of minutes that the buyer considers their own time is worth. @bkandco @studio2017_project_space

Nocturne | Rowen Matthews

BY Helen Day | 27-Oct-2017
At the end of the day, escarpments are light catchers. The remaining light of the day cuts across horizontally like a big torch, and that light finds the most intense colours, and contrasts, just before the whole thing turns dark. It’s at such times that I’ve been at some of my favorite spots up the end of Hat Hill Road in Blackheath, looking back at Twin Falls or out from Anvil Rock, soaking it all in. Rowen Matthews, October, 2017.
