Like Light

Cutting into the vinyl pieces and making them into something new was even more enjoyable than we’d expected it to be. We had followed a plan for the top peaks and bottom pools, and allowed our scissors to glide in the middle. And we’ll do it again with what remains. We are so glad we had the chance to make this piece, to reinvent the original printing of Ripples in the Open.

Nineteen: a compilation box of zines, 2017 – 2018

A limited edition compilation set of all our recent zines, one atop the other, from the largest to the smallest, to make a happy squeeze.

As with previous sets, each box set contains the first of each zine edition released within that time frame. Housed in giant matchboxes featuring our recent collaged landscape, Ripples in the Open, editions are in the process of being delivered to the collections of Melbourne University Library, National Library of Australia, and State Library Victoria.

From 2017
Limbed
Winged
Dove, love, wash
Here, there
Duck in, duck out
Flippered and flightless
Pattern
Round, circle, dot
Take a lesson from the ground
Seasonal museum sketches (autumn)
It was a familiar pattern


From 2018
Your gelatine silver print, in the shape of the full moon
Paw Pad Path
Looped
I think all the world is falling
No longer six feet under
Disrupted and rumpled
Dim wood, spark bright
A warmed pebble in my hand

We have two more sets left, if you are interested. Please contact us to find out more.
