MARRICKVILLE FESTIVAL 2012

The Marrickville Council held it's flagship event on the weekend, the Marrickville Festival. The festival aims to bring together diverse and vibrant people, cultures, and creative communities, I would say that goal was definitely achieved. I took a few snaps while I was there :)

FUJIKO'S FOG

The 18th Biennale of Sydney is on. Yay! And the weather on the weekend was perfect for exploring some of the projects and performances on Cockatoo Island. I had planned to do a post about everything I saw but there is just too much to cram into a single post. So, inspired by the foggy morning in Sydney today, I have decided to start with Fujiko Nakaya's fog installation, Living Chasm.

I saw photos of this popping up on Instagram and knew I had to see it for myself. And I wasn't disappointed. You have gotta love art the you can walk in, around and over! Fujiko uses pure-water fog to create her ephemeral sculptures. And what makes this even more impressive is that she is almost 80 years old! Amazing.

Who would have guessed it was a bright and sunny day from looking at the images above?

And yep! That's me above, taking photos of the fog.

VIVID

Uh-oh! I'm late with my Friday illustration again. But I have something else to show you instead... some photos I took at Vivid Sydney. If you are in Sydney and haven't seen it yet, you should. It is definitely worth braving the crowds and cold nights to see this creative festival of light. It's on until the 11th of June in Circular Quay and it's FREE!
