Back in to the studio for some mouldy pics.
Upcoming exhibition launch, 4pm Saturday 12 June at the Goat Gallery in Natimuk, Victoria
My exhibition Death on the Street is up! The opening will be this Friday in Natimuk, Victoria for all those who can make it.
The Goat Gallery in Natimuk, Victoria has welcomed the Death on the Street exhibition to be shown over the next week. The show is rescheduled successfully! Sadly the opening will be reduced to 10 local people and our Melbourne associates will be missed very much.
Using 100 square metres of barrier mesh, 35 kilometres of barricade tape and 2,500 cable ties, anonymous street artists wrapped 1500 public facilities in parks, footpaths and stations across Melbourne, Australia during the lockdown in 2020 to create Wrapt, a public art streetscape.

I execute the set-up with an objective microscope lens mounted to my 35 mm camera. With the microscopic lens (15 x magnification), the depth of field is only about 5 microns (5 thousandths of a millimetre), less than the thickness of a human hair. To be able to get a photo with everything in focus, I use a technique called focus stacking. I shoot a series of images with the focus changed manually between each shot while painting with light to capture as much detail as I can. For some photos, I take up to 150 individual images and “stack” them in post-production to create a composite picture of all of the in-focus parts of each image.

Light is the medium, a digital sensor the canvas, locomotion the brushstroke; a Locograph is similar to an impressionist painting as it is not concerned with accurate details rather the expression of the moment.
