Here is my third and final post from the Sydney Biennale on Cockatoo Island, although I'm not ruling out another visit! I'm starting off with my favourite installation on the island, a kinetic sculpture by Philip Beesley. The Hylozoic Series is like a living creature and has to be seen to be believed, this alone makes the trip worthwhile. Philip Beesley Daan Roosegaarde Monika Grzymala and Euraba Artists and Papermakers Unfortunately I can't remember which part of the island the images below came from and I'm not sure of the artist's name, further research is required I think!

Following on from yesterday's post here are a few more photos from the 18th Biennale of Sydney. The Biennale runs from the 27th June until the 16th September 2012 at different venues around Sydney. If you happen to be in town you should definitely check it out, although careful planning is recommended to avoid queuing for hours as we did on the weekend. After waiting for the ferry to Cockatoo Island we only ended up with a few hours to explore when we could easily have spent a whole day or two wandering around. There is so much to see and experience, more than I could ever capture or do justice in a few photographs so please, put this on your "to do" list. Erin Manning
I still have lots more to show you, so maybe one more post on the Biennale before Friday... see you tomorrow :)
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.
