NewZ(ine) - I made a zine of some really simple collages, exploring texture, shape and colour.   Here’s a looky - let me know if you’d like one 
Today I built a ‘fence’ along the path at my place. It’d fallen down (more than a year ago! Our landlord sucks) and my inner handy man whipped up a reasonably good barrier using scrap wood. Also chopped down a bush, and made a mouse trap
And coming up this week I’m doing a Scratch Night performance! I’ll be doing a public lecture/monologue about learning, science and curiosity. Understudy @ Bats, Wednesday July 2nd, 9pm, koha

I’m working on a monologue/public lecture performance at the moment. It’s going to be about science and how awesome learning and curiosity are, structured within a narrative of my life. I think it’s going to be great. 

I’ve not really done something like this before, so am trying to make sure all the planning is there first, before diving in. That does mean though that I don’t feel like I’ve got much to show for now. But ‘hello’, and I hope you’re doing well.

What else is new? I’m seeing Janelle Monáe in two weeks and am flippin’ excited! Things are pretty fab

Real democracy needs to include everyone. Democracy = Collaboration. Let’s build it together. ♥ #Loomio http://thndr.it/NyrLO2

This is really awesome. Please check out this project, I think it has the potential to make some huge, positive changes

This is a matchbox I decorated for Amnesty International’s Strike exhibition. It’s ‘an exhibition and auction of art created on Beehive matchboxes that celebrates the humble match to raise funds for Amnesty International. It features artists, designers, jewellery makers, fashion designers, sculptors and crafty sorts. This year we’ll be exhibiting and auctioning over 75 tiny works of art’. This is some more of a hundred million things but rather more stream of consciousness and garbled

Haraklōn

Haraklōn is a project that attempts to tie together two technologies and cultures - Maori and ancient Greek. Models of five polyhedra know as the Platonic solids are created using sticks lashed together.

Sticks and harakeke are collected on a walk along trails of Mount Victoria, Wellington. Harakeke is gathered as needed, and cut with a shell found in Breaker Bay. Maori customs are followed as closely as I understand, and are informed by library books, and (I’m on the search for) traditional teachers. The solids are made ideally in one sitting

The name Haraklōn is a neologism, combining harakeke (New Zealand flax) with the Greek word klōn, meaning branch or twig (and is also the root word of ‘cloning’) The whole project is a follow on from pastings and street art I’ve made, with a natural materials twist. I’ve realised that so much of what I’ve produced gets removed, degraded, or broken down. Keeping with this, these objects are left at spots along Mt Victoria trails, for nature to take its course

I’ve started up a couple of occasional tumblrs you might be interested in. mountvictoria chronicles my adventures around Mt Victoria, Wellington. audible glimpse records parts of conversations I’ve overheard and found interesting. Explore your surroundings /// don’t wear headphones. It’s a giving world
