This is an image of a Thai temple built from recycled bottles. With a bit of lateral thinking, many things laid to waste could be transformed into creative projects. What resources do we have in abundance?

The Adnyamathanha Women’s Choir will be taking the Yarnballa Festival stage at sunset, and look who else is in the mix – the irrepressible Ken McKenzie. 


Musicians and songwriters taking part in the Yarnballa Festival Music Workshops in Port Augusta are writing a song to capture the spirit of Yarnballa that will be performed at the Festival’s opening ceremony on the shores of the Spencer Gulf.

Under the guidance of acclaimed singer/songwriter Sonny Keeler, who is conducting songwriting classes as part of the six-week workshop, the local muso’s are developing an anthem for South Australia’s first Indigenous Arts and Culture Festival.

Gina sent in this link to the work of Chris Jordan, an American artist whose series “Running the Numbers”, in his own words,

visually examines these vast and bizarre measures of our society, in large intricately detailed prints assembled from thousands of smaller photographs. Employing themes such as the near versus the far, and the one versus the many, I hope to raise some questions about the role of the individual in a society that is increasingly enormous, incomprehensible, and overwhelming.

It’s giddying stuff alright, check it out.
