Michaela Gleave - Our Frozen Moment.

Michaela Gleave was a fellow Takt resident in Berlin during 2010. 
This is her installation at Performance Space in Sydney, Australia. Looks awesome, wish I could have seen/experienced it.

From Press Release:
Our Frozen Moment is an atmospheric-based installation by Michaela Gleave, a large-scale experiment in space, light and the possibilities that shape our perception of the universe.  Presented as a stage-like set, the viewer is invited to step into a ‘field of stars’ as a mass of tiny droplets spark briefly into existence before disappearing from view.
Our Frozen Moment references optical phenomena such as ‘prisoner’s cinema’, the atmospheric condition ‘diamond dust’, and ‘frozen’ stars thought to be fueled by dark matter. The installation places the viewer at the centre of a universe, a performer in their own theatrical set, their own unique presence in the space-time continuum held up for view.
This project is supported by the Australia Council through the Visual Arts Board.

Showing at Letham Gallery, Ponsonby.

I have a couple of pieces (well,three) on show at Letham Gallery in Ponsonby, Auckland for the next week or so.

Ron English at Webb's Auction House. Auckland, NZ.

The show (half prints, half originals) coincides with English's appearance at Semi-Permanent.
It's scary how impressed I would have been by this 20 years ago.

Oh he's also Chris Brown's favourite artist.
