BUNDANON Residency 2018 – WHY ARE WE HERE?

leave a comment »

WHY ARE WE – documentation of a page from the Island Book

 

WHY ARE WE … Here at Bundanon?

In 2007 we were successful applicants for a Bundanon residency that enabled is to realize a major component of our individual PhD research. However we still needed to resolve many issues raised by this work and to return our finished works to be documented in the site that they were created. So in 2009 we were granted a second residency to complete this part of our studies.

While we were deep in our research other interesting and unanswered questions arose that have haunted us since this time. Although our itinerant life in the last few years has been exciting and constantly changing, we have missed the opportunity to be in a studio and a place devoted to just working on our practice.

Now this latest residency will give us time to work again at the boundaries of our practice and create the new work that has been gestating in our minds over these few years.

See our COOPER+SPOWART website for further info. (Please note the content of this page are Adobe Flash driven presentations)See relevant aspects of our past Bundanon residencies relating to our PhD research here Victoria COOPER ThesisDoug SPOWART – Thesis.

leave a comment »

WPD-logo

Round the [w]hole world on Sunday the 29th of April 2018 pinholers were out having fun – Making their images for the 2018 WPD. Far away from the darkroom (again) we’ve once again fitted a pin-prick in a piece of aluminium fitted to a body cap of our Olympus Pen EP-5 camera and we went on a cruise around the New South Wales town of Muswellbrook pinholing…

This is the 13th year we have supported the WPD project!

ABOUT VICKY’S PINHOLE IMAGE:

.

Each day birds of all sizes come to drink from this and it is shared with the two cats who live here too… It is the driest April on record in this region of Australia.

The photo was taken with the intention of capturing the sun flare. Digital capture with hand-made hole on an Olympus EP5 on manual setting.

Lest we forget – April 25th by Doug Spowart

.

ABOUT DOUG’S PINHOLE IMAGE:

.

Each year on April 25 Australian and New Zealand peoples commemorate ANZAC Day in recognition of the sacrifice made by soldiers from our country in the First World War. Floral tributes are laid at memorials all over the country. The message on most wreaths is the phrase ‘Lest we forget’.

The photomontage is made up of 5 images – each photo was taken on an Olympus EP5 digitally with a hand-made pinhole.
