Embracing ‘otherness’ at The Other Film Festival

“I liken social change to the shifting of tectonic plates underneath the earth’s surface.  The process is incredibly slow but when the plates collide the results are life-altering earthquakes and tsunamis.  Social change does occur, but it occurs far too slowly.  I’m an impatient man.  I want to see real change in my lifetime, and I want The Other Film Festival to act as an agent for that change.  I want complete cinema access for people with disabilities to be taken for granted in the future.” Read the rest of Ryan Nances article on Embracing 'otherness' at The Other Film Festival»

Bang on for Barangaroo

Arts groups across the city are up in arms about the plans for the development of Barangaroo and want more promotion of the arts and cultural activities. If you can’t stand the plans for an ugly hotel jutting into Sydney Harbour and mammoth high rise buildings along our foreshore, or the way these large developments are all done behind closed doors, then check out this vid..

WORTH DYING FOR

No. 1 Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author Lee Child follows the electrifying 61 Hours with his second Reacher thriller this year – a story that hits the ground running and then accelerates all the way to a colossal showdown.

Worth Dying For is the kind of explosive thriller only Lee Child could write and only Jack Reacher could survive – a heart-racing page-turner no suspense fan will want to miss.

Festival of the Winds 2010

Hundreds or maybe more, unidentified flying objects are expected to hit Sydney’s Eastern suburbs on Sunday 12th September 2010, and air traffic controllers may be scratching their heads already in fears of a mid-air collision.

From flying cartoon characters to floating dragons or even dancing butterflies… what will this year’s Festival of the Winds bring along? Read the rest of Arnos Festival of the Winds Article»

Phu Tang Shoots Jamie Thomas for Avido

On Monday Design Federation popped into a construction site in Paddington to check out some magic being made. Photographer, Phu Tang, was shooting his “Shoot The Chef” submission featuring English chef, Jamie Thomas, the food maestro for new restaurant Avido.  

Amid the drilling, concrete dust, sparkies and cement pouring, Tang had his chef (ex Victor Churchill) perched on some scaffolding sharpening his knives in a vaguely psychopathic manner. While the swirling chaos of the restaurant reno moving at pace around them (afterall, doors are scheduled to be swinging open late September) Thomas maintained a stronghold over serenity.  

To further the zen and ambience of the place, enter Matt Woods, new kid on the block when it comes to designer interiors. He’s handling look and feel which was still an unrealised vision on Monday but rumour is, the place will look wicked and if sustainably designed Bloodwood – Matt’s last project – is anything to go by, we should expect to be impressed.

Black Sheep: 4th Annual Google Exhibition

A search engine, an outsider and a gallery director walked into a bar…..


Art by Yolanda Elkhouri

For the past four years, curators at Hardware Gallery have been selecting artists to particpate in our annual google exhibition. The brief is quite simple: On the same day, at the same time, all the artists have to google the same phrase. From a single page of results, all artists must select a single website as their sole source of inspiration for their artwork….and this year’s phrase? Black Sheep of course – the theme of the Sydney Fringe Festival 2010.
