new networks, new spaces

Almost one week down at the ANAT New Media lab - Create_Space - at the Melbourne Meat Market venue.

Meeting, collaborating and socialising with a range of Australian New Media artists - Tim Plaisted, Matt Gardiner, Troy Innocent, Alex Gillespie, Sarah Neville, Trish Adams, Tim Barrass, Andrew Burrell, Shiralee Saul plus facilitators Adam Nash, Jonah Brucker-Cohen and Katherine Moriwaki.

Much discussion of history/memory, residue, layering of memory over time in relation to specific locations, associations between particular spaces and feelings.

The first collaboration project with Tim Plaisted and Trish Adams resulted in a number of concepts for projects around the themes of: waiting spaces, lost spaces, inaccessible spaces, display/stage spaces, dead spaces.

Fantastic to collaborate with a new group of people who are highly skilled at what they do. Also really interesting to see/hear how other's deal with space, and interesting to see my own perception and association to public and social spaces.
