Five Western Australian Artists Respond to the COVID-19 Pandemic
A responsive residency in isolation
Art is a sublime state that exists outside the body – a force bigger than the individual, a more-than-human landscape that we each inhabit through our practice.
The 5 artists will spend 5 days in residence, responding to this idea. Artists will be posting online daily during their residency, and at the conclusion of their research, they will live-stream the results online, forming the starting point of the next artist’s research.
This project would not have been possible without the support of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, and Paper Mountain

- cr0nes: clouds in order by colour (two short poems)Clouds are not as random as they seem. Affected (created!) by environmental information – pressure, moisture, movement, air, heat, earth interactions. Interruptions. Clouds, limited by their atmospheric container. Coloured by light. Unknowable in their entirety. Music is not as improvised as it seems. Created (affected!) by corporal information – pressure, timbre, movement, air, heat, mindContinue reading “cr0nes: clouds in order by colour (two short poems)”
