Holy moly, where did that month go?
Well, at this end I’ve been working on new pieces for the scaled up Connexions Exhibition, that will have it’s official opening in Perth as a satellite event of IOTA21 on the 30th of September. Mark your diaries for that, and leave the evening of Tuesday the 21st free if you are interested in hearing from myself and my esteemed colleague Sarah Elson (Sarah and me go way back, she first featured on this blog in 2010) in our presentations for the re-calibrated online JMGA conference, Value Chains.
Quite the digressions, it has been a while.
What I came here to say, as indicated in the title, is that we’re coming up on moving day for the Juukan Tears work. It’s scheduled for pickup Friday the 6th of August from 8:30am AWST.
In a stroke of good luck (am I even brave enough to say it out loud? Touching lots of wood right now, y’all) the current forecast is for sun. For those of you not keeping up with the West Australian winter, Perth has broken several records in the rainfall department over July. I have been found complaining to some of my Seattle friends about the quantity of grey days and the unusual brine-y smell that seems adopted from that other WA – Washington State, that is.
OK, back to the task at hand. The work that was the subject of over 4 months of footage on the Melissa Cameron YouTube channel, Juukan Tears, is going to be prepped for relocation, after I complete a couple of important tasks. Thus the channel will be operating with new live footage for a few days next week as the work’s production goes into encore mode!
Not to spoil all the action, but I haven’t yet signed the work and there’s some welding to do to the letter forms now that the best fixing method has been arrived upon. There’s a bit of testing, a bit of wrapping and some more random chatting before we literally send the work off the 1st floor balcony next Friday.
Of course I’m getting the whole gang back together for that event – Susannah Kings-Lynne will be in the house, along wth Bruce, he of occasional cameo fame (mostly in on tech-related matters), alongside our other cameo artist Mir Ng, of short-filming fame.
At this stage I will start at 10:00am AWST on Monday, and I’ll finish up when I’m done wrapping. In other zones that’s at:
Auckland – 2:00 pm
New York – 10:00 pm*
Sydney -12:00 pm
Calgary – 8:00 pm*
Seattle – 7:00 pm*
/ / / *Sunday, the 1st if August
From Monday until I finish the wrapping I’ll be happy to chat if you have any queries, and it will remain available to re-stream indefinitely.
The Friday event will be, as mentioned, from 8:30am AWST, or:
Auckland –12:30 pm
New York – 8:30 pm*
Sydney -10:30 pm
Calgary – 6:30 pm*
Seattle – 5:30 pm*
Catch you next week!
*Thursday, the 5th of August
