Pilgrim's Progress by Bernadette Smith and Dr Mark Elliot-Ranken at the Harbour Sculpture Prize. When people believed the Earth was flat sailors thought if they sailed beyond the known sea they could fall off the edge of the world. This collaborative mixed-media work honours the brave seafarers from many cultures, both Pacific and European who ventured across unknown oceans to reach new lands.
My temporal guerrilla art intervention at the Redfern Biennale which included 'readymades, sculpture, multi media, new media, painting, found object, anything and everything placed along Walker Street, Redfern between Cooper and Redfern Streets'.
