Photogram project at JHH

Currently on exhibition at the John Hunter Hospital is a project by Advanced Diploma of Fine Art Photomedia students. The piece was created during a visit on the grounds of the hospital where discarded items were collected. Inspired by these treasures, the students then continued to collect items from TAFE to produce the final work.

Workshop Week at TAFE

Workshop week is a time to try something new. The usual path is deviated from and we throw ourselves into the deep end of some strange and fascinating new methods of mark making. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes borrowed and sometimes blue (that's the cyanotype workshop)

The workshop I conducted with Clare Weeks was all about making a time lapse animation. We had a lovely group of eager participants. The process can be time consuming but our group dove in head first and came up smiling. Several hundred images later and each member of the group had a completed animation by the end of the day. Some of which are displayed below for your enjoyment.

Thanks to the artists Sharon Williams, Patrick Maverty and Nicholas Grimes
