The Travelling Journal, a story about six Australian artists

The Travelling Journal was a project I collaboratively worked on with a number of interesting artist types. In no order, my partners were:

Kathryn Shewring
Cherie Strong
Little Detour

And it spent six to eight weeks being passed aound the Eastern coast of Australia. I got it first, my contribution is the four anatomically-themed textile panels in the centre. I gave them the working title of Eyes, Brain, Heart & Hands, and I’ve never thought of anything more fitting. Eyes, Brain, Heart & Hands, 2012 it is then. A work within a work, was this Travelling Journal.
I really enjoyed stretching myself artistically – using threads to complete a line drawing was out of my comfort zone enough to be pleased what I’d accomplished in the timeframe, and close enough to it that I was confident I would not overreach. I refer to this artistic mind space as THE SAFETY ZONE.
Eyes, Brain
Heart, Hands

I’ve learned how to embed videos now:

This was put together at the end by Barek, who is pretty clever at making short films about art. More about them here.
