DAY 207: IT'S ALWAYS DARKEST...
A visitor from
a familiar place - the
not so distant past.
IT'S ALWAYS DARKEST JUST BEFORE DAWN is a year long time-based digital & art jewellery project that runs 1 July 2014 - 30 June 2015.
The project is a contemporary multi-disciplinary enquiry that explores the significance of handmade objects at a time when people are engrossed in digital culture and mass-produced products.
IT’S ALWAYS DARKEST JUST BEFORE DAWN will pursue the creation of authentic representations, starting with digital (moving/still) documentation of my locale that will inform new and tangible, contemporary art jewellery. This daily digital archiving forms part of the research as well as acts as the foundation of the project.
IT'S ALWAYS DARKEST JUST BEFORE DAWN will be exhibited at Gray Street Workshop gallery in early 2015. More details about the exhibition will be released closer to the date.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, and by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments.
