Jason and Jeff on YOLO. Jeff was kind enough to allow us to use his mooring when he took his boat, Albatross, up north.We left YOLO on the mooring and headed off on a campervan tour in late January. Then the flood came.... another whole story.
We spent a day touring the art from the 7th Asia Pacific Triennial (APT7) expo. It was in the building next to the library we practically lived in, so we walked the extra 100 feet and wandered through the exhibits and joined a guided tour there. The theme this year was Papua New Guinea so the following pictures show art that is representative of the native works from that country,which is just off the northeast corner of Australia.
Big Yellow, an artwork made of cardboard boxes taped together and painted yellow. It was over 30' long and covered the whole end of a hallway. Art???..... You can see it in the background of several other shots.
A closeup of a massive collection of blown glass animals that are strung along a huge tabletop representing a huge migration of all the animals of the world. There are thousands of these little blown glass animals. Can you imagine the job of packing them up to move them one day?
One of the 6' ditty bags on the wall. It's made of recycled barbed wire. Another was bed springs and others were different metals salvaged from junk yards.
A giant wooden carriage with a small compartment in it. I climbed up to look into the inside and got scolded by a museum employee.
A suspended shrine made of balsa wood that took up an entire room. It is made to represent a reflection/mirror image of itself in the water and is identical from top to bottom, just inverted.
"The Written Room", with nonsensical Farsi scribbling meant to invoke calm. It looks like musical notes or tree branches to me. I really liked this room
