Title:  TEMPO/REALITIES: Notes on anachronism in Australian art

And then there is the matter of the highly improper manipulation of time. [..] Sometimes one feels like banging the table and exclaiming, “Enough of this! Keep off time, time is untouchable, one must not provoke it! Isn’t it enough for you to have space? Space is for human beings, you can swing about in space, turn somersaults, fall down, jump from start to start, but for goodness’ sake, don’t tamper with time!”
The Street of Crocodiles and Other Stories, Bruno Schultz

With thanks to Alfonse Chiu.

Title: Afterimages of Solastalgia

Details: Afterimages of Solastalgia is organized through a descendent logic of apex and decline. The project initially reads the astrophysical genesis of cosmic accretion as invariably related to our current all too human condition. Subsequently, it emulates near-future environmental collapse in order to theorize a future Earth before it manifests.

Title: Care Cooperative

Details:  As Barcelona’s significant elderly population grows so too does the city’s need for elder care. In many cases this care is now provided by a domestic care worker - the vast majority of whom are women employed on low wages under temporary contracts with poor working conditions. To assist in improving the conditions of these care workers, the municipality of Barcelona aims to develop a cooperative care model, in which both care workers and their users are members. This will allow care users greater agency over the care they receive, whilst ensuring care workers greater control over how their labour is compensated.

Title: Melbourne Art Library’s ‘Reading Aloud’ 

Details: Discussions led by local designers, curators, and researchers, in response to the question: “How can we promote peer-to-peer learning through design?”. Through the action of sharing and listening, we considered what voices are most commonly heard in design and in spaces of information sharing. We investigated how activation of space through voices can create ‘libraries’, and encouraged our circles to be the starting point of meaningful exchange amongst participants.
These events were hosted by Caliper Journal, OFFICE, Dr Tony Roberts and Dr Ben Byrne, and Kate Rhodes and Nick Selentisch.

With Nell Fraser, Fi Wilson, Alec Wilson, and Jenna Muir.

Title: Semionautics Special Report - Eclipse

Details: Finding the forecast mistaken and getting caught in a downpour may be unpleasant but it’s hardly uncommon. Meteorology, the science which works to systematise the weather, is constantly improving and yet will never be perfect. Weather events that were once understood as isolated came later to be understood as expressions of integrated complex systems. An event which may have once been understood as a miracle or omen came to be seen as information; from the noise we learned to read signals, or so we thought. This audio mix is a work of fiction set in the near future, which takes the form of a special report on eclipses. In it, different eclipse readings are counterposed to produce a meditation on the inalienable desire to order, and our fraught attempts to render meaning from indeterminacy.

Title: Climavore: On Tidal Zones - Cooking Sections

Climavore explores how to eat as climate changes. It is a long-term project with site-specific interventions that use food as a tool to address environmental degradation. Different from carnivore, omnivore, locavore, vegetarian, or vegan diets, Climavore is a form of devouring that reacts to anthropogenic landscapes and uses ingredients as infrastructural responses to man-induced climatic events.
