perfect day for a...

Scavenger Hunt - we Broadstroke girls set out in teams of two to collect/draw/photograph/list a series of inspirations/items.
West End & South Brisbane the area of exploration.
Teams were encouraged to think outside of the square and interpret at will.
 So with our page of items we set out to find or interpret at will items such as mail, text, old vs new, architecture, 
street graffiti/art, ghoulish, travel, sound & map a part of our walk.
What a fabulous way to re-visit an area I frequent - to pause, to see all the levels of inspirations, culture and history this area holds. We gathered for lunch at one of the local cafes and shared our discoveries - a very inspirational day.

slide press, slide press our daily dance

An artistic response to the act of texting and the role it has played for two people who work odd shifts. Our screens the dance floor and our thumbs make the moves. Slide press, slide press, back and forth our daily dance igniting a kaleidoscope of feelings and memories.

deconstruction and surprise

as we stripped out the kitchen cabinets we reveal relative aging renovation style
if husband and I had a bit more knowledge on interior fashions & history I'm sure we could pin point the era of the previous renovations and paint overs
and the surprise - there were no interior walls behind the cabinets at this end - surprise!!
the other surprise the signing on the exterior wall by a previous builder & and a collection of pennies hidden in the wall
so incredibly grateful for the workmates of husband who chipped in over the weekend, replacing the walls, doing the electrics and evening out the floor before laying the new lino flooring in readiness for the cabinet maker who arrives tomorrow
and of course I couldn't miss the opportunity of capturing all those interesting textures that lay within the walls of 
our humble home
