Nyikina Collaborative Filmmaking

Abstract

In October 2016 I worked with Filmmaker Magali McDuffie on visualising the collaborative process that she has employed when working with the Nyikina Community of Western Australia. The figures were created in an online visual editing tool called Gliffy.

These were developed and formed part of a higher degree by research (HDR) presentation at the end of that year.

Learning2gether Network

Vance-Stevens

On the 14th August 2016 I met Vance Steven's from the Learning2gether Network who was curious as to how my dissertation was progressing.

In conjunction with the Teach And Learn Online Network (TALO) I met with Vance in Google Hangouts and discussed the progress of the PhD to date.

Skaters

My two Sons and my Daughter love the Woden Skate Park in Woden ACT Australia. I decided one day that rather than just sit and watch them go round and round in circles I'd get the iPhone 6S out and have a snap at the tricks and amazing "air" that these kids get in this great free community facility.

Most Of Me

in May 2014 I began taking "selfies" using my cell phone and committed to myself that I would take them through a particularly hard time in my journey. Over that period, from May 2014 through to May 2015 I took in total 11,000 selfies. Out of all of those images I chose 25 image which best represent my emotional range during that period - from deep grief and sadness, through to happiness and freedom.

2015 SCIT EIS Research Showcase

In 2015 I created and presented this poster at the 2015 HDR SCIT Research Showcase at the University of Wollongong, Australia.

The poster provides a clear summary of the proposed outputs of the PhD thesis, by themes, associations and research focus. Given that my PhD has been all about people and community I found it important to reflect on where the individual is within their capacity to be a catalyst for change as the ethic generator, not simply a member of a community or geographical region bound moral overture.

There is much room for debate and learning, growing in this area for me and I welcome feedback.

Coven As We Keep

This body of photography was predominantly shot using my Iphone 6 whilst I travelled through the south west regional coast towns of NSW , then across through to the Dandenong Ranges of Victoria Australia visiting friends during the heart of winter and then a few more photos here in Canberra, Australia. During this time I was deeply affected by my time spent with my middle Daughter Amelia Manon, my early days connection with Magali McDuffie, my partner and was in the process of resigning from the Serving Our Country project at the Australia National University.

Twixt States

From mid 2014 through to mid 2015 I took a series of photographs of the lake around Canberra, Australia. I was living in Kingston at the time and was running regularly around the lake "processing" the change in my life at the time.

Ceremony

In March 2015 shortly after meeting Magali with Manon as well we were "married" by Manon in a beautiful pagan wedding complete with willow garlands, swan, church bells and beautiful sunsets. A hellish six months followed.

Raw Grandeur

raw-grandeur

About

In February 2015 I was contacted by Sarina del Fuego from RAW to showcase on the 13th March at the Belconnen Arts Centre, Canberra, ACT. 

This is the first collaborative exhibition I have exhibited in since 2003.

It would be wonderful if you could support me by purchasing a ticket - $16.50 AUD

That ticket sale ensures we have the venue covered and allows the artists (me) to sell work without a commission. It is a model of getting events happening that make Artist's responsible for their own marketing and bringing their network into awareness of their work. I fully support this model and ask you to support me by purchasing a ticket and seeing my work and the work of other emergent and experienced artists in Caanberra.


My Mission

My mission is to sell at least one artwork and reimburse everyone's ticket in full.


Purchase A Ticket

The direct ticket purchase link is  http://www.rawartists.org/canberra/grandeur/?artist=267183

Thank you! I look very much forward to seeing you at this event.


Details

7:30 PM start

Belconnen Arts Centre

118 Emu Bank, Belconnen

ACT, Australia


Dress Code

Smart casual through to cocktail outrageous.

UC Wearables Conference

In early 2014 as a result of many discussions at the University of Canberra, INSPIRE Centre and in discussions with Jenny Millea, Bruce Arnold and Professor Robert Fitzgerald the concept of bringing people together for a wearable conference grew.

Link: http://www.inspire.edu.au/uc-wearables/

Due to personal reasons I was unable to contribute further to the Committee that was formed to oversee the growth of this important event. I hope in some way I'll have the opportunity to contribute further to the event.


"....It’s on your wrist, your ankle. It may be embedded in your jacket, your shoe, your vest or your hat. It may be under your skin. It may help you walk or talk, find your way, communicate with a friend, with your doctor, or your coach. It monitors your heart rate, the moisture on your skin, every breath you take, and every move you make. And it’s connected. And networked.

Your bodily functions are no longer only your own. Your privates are no longer private. Information about the most intimate you is transmitted in real time to – where? And to whom? And for what purpose?

The Wearable Technology Symposium will explore and expose the issues, challenges, opportunities and the applications of wearables. Participate in our Grand Experiment and become your own data. Delve into the changing concepts of privacy, freedom and the self in the age of wearable tech in health, the military and education."

CONTRIBUTE TO THE CONVERSATION; PONDER YOUR FUTURE.

Libre Detre

In May 2014 I decided to explore the full physicality of myself in a "breakout" from what I felt I'd restrained myself to be at the time. This portfolio of images shows my exploration at that that time.

I am on the sidelines on Google Glass still. I am sure wearables in will have a massive impact. GG however still seems technically immature and in the realm of the 'early pioneer geeks' with massive wallets and lot's of time on their hand ... ;-P

You seem to be hell bent on scoring a job in Google judging by your SocMed streams. Onya !
