Posters for a Friend's Bedroom
In Posters for a Friend’s Bedroom, I have brought together a series of artworks for loved ones. The works are intended to hang in a fictional bedroom, as blessings of friendship and forces of protection. Each work is made as a gift, and therefore interrogates what it means to produce for the result of giving away. The ‘posters’ depict intimate moments, parts of friends I wish to help heal, and objects/places that influence my approach to affection. This list of subject matter moves through many material processes - from drawings, to scans, to digital files, to machine cutting, the resulting 'posters' are poetic and obscured.

Super-organism is a multi-media, multi-sensory project exploring pattern finding and self-organising systems. Beginning with an interest in honeybees as a typical super-organism and an indicator of ecological change, our project expands into creative engagements with economic systems and information exchange, from the analogue of speech and wing-vibration to digital networks.
Kudos Gallery is run by UNSW Art & Design students and funded by Arc @ UNSW Limited.
