David Jones, artist and poet (1895-1974) begins his PREFACE TO THE ANATHEMATA :

'I have made a heap of all that I could find.' (1) So wrote Nennius, or whoever composed the introductory matter to Historia Brittonum. He speaks of an 'inward wound' which was caused by the fear that certain things dear to him 'should be like smoke dissipated'. Further, he says, 'not trusting my own learning, which is none at all, but partly from writings and monuments of the ancient inhabitants of Britain, partly from the annals of the Romans and the chronicles of the sacred fathers, Isidore, Hieronymous, Prosper, Eusebius and from the histories of the Scots and Saxons although our enemies . . . I have lispingly put together this . . . about past transactions, that [this material] might not be trodden under foot'. (2)

(1) The actual words are coacervavi omne quod inveni, and occur in Prologue 2 to the Historia.
(2) Quoted from the translation of Prologue 1. See The Works of Gildas and Nennius, J.A.Giles, London 1841.

Another giant tree falls in the forest : Vale Alvin Lucier (1931 - 2021)


"I am sitting in a room different from the one you are in now. I am recording the sound of my speaking voice and I am going to play it back into the room again and again until the resonant frequencies of the room reinforce themselves so that any semblance of my speech, with perhaps the exception of rhythm, is destroyed. What you will hear, then, are the natural resonant frequencies of the room articulated by speech. I regard this activity not so much as a demonstration of a physical fact, but more as a way to smooth out any irregularities my speech might have."

- Alvin Lucier 1969

Vale Lawrence Weiner (1942 - 2021)


 MEMORY OF A SMILE 
 EXCHANGED 
 Sydney 1990 



OUT OF SIGHT is an interactive 'sculpture' by internationally recognized American conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner. The OUT OF SIGHT marelle (or hopscotch in French) is a curved structure that suggests a fluid and engaged journey of forward motion for participants.

Participants are encouraged to move along the OUT OF SIGHT pathway and activate the ideas within OUT OF SIGHT in their own expressive way. The core OUT OF SIGHT phrases are:
  - ASSUMING A POSITION
  - PRESUME A DESTINATION &
  - ONE CAN ONLY IMAGINE THE POWERS THAT BE
  - & IMAGINED THINGS CAN BE ALTERED TO SUIT
  - SPIT INTO THE WIND HOPE FOR THE BEST
  - THE DESTINATION IS STRAIGHT ON
  - OUT OF SIGHT

Materials will be provided to encourage viewers to consider further these playful statements in the context of their own lives. OUT OF SIGHT is not only a work of art but also acts as a metaphorical framework for the journey of self-discovery and empowerment, enlivening the experience of anyone who encounters it.

OUT OF SIGHT is an artwork that celebrates the potential within all of us to connect with ourselves and with other in a process of shared exploration.

re. Invitation to look at


HANSARD : 29 November 2021 : HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES : QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE :

Climate Change

Photo of MPMr BOWEN (McMahon) (15:03): My question is to the Prime Minister. The government signed up to the COP26 request for countries to strengthen their 2030 targets by the end of 2022. But just hours later, the government said its 2030 target was 'fixed'. Why did the Prime Minister tell the world one thing and then tell the Australian people the exact opposite?


Photo of MP

Mr MORRISON (CookPrime Minister) (15:03): The member's question is not telling the truth. The COP26 arrangement was that members were invited to look at these things, and that's all we agreed to do.

Vale Stephen Sondheim (1930 - 2021)


"An intellectually rigorous artist who perpetually sought new creative paths, Mr. Sondheim was the theater’s most revered and influential composer-lyricist of the last half of the 20th century, if not its most popular."
