Australia turned out to be a trip of audio difficulties, but even with a blown XLR cable and ONE working microphone Zoë Sadokierski is a voice that comes through in surround sound. For ANYONE with an interest in books, design, … Read More

Sydney Journal Eleven

Glass pack feedback on a second gear scratch. Kent and Bathhurst. For us or the audience who doesn’t really care? On this street corner, right here and now, just watching. There is no reason to act but believe me when … Read More

Sydney Journal Ten

Slow sweat creeping up. Jacket off and packed up. Southern light burning into me. Autumn is such a lovely word. The train is whisper silent. No one speaks, and beyond this there is a “silent carriage.” My kind of place. … Read More

Real Time Sydney Book v2 with Garry Trinh

What happens after the prints are made, the sequence is chosen and things move forward? We make decisions. A change of course. From Blurb Trade Book to Magcloud Digest. Why? Garry has never done a Magcloud publication, so reason enough … Read More

Sydney Journal Nine

“I wanted a mission and for my sins they gave me one.” Captain Willard. Upriver. Parramatta. Green to gold and then to black. Bubbling. Turmoil. Jet foil. Narrower and narrower. “It’s a slow boat,” someone warns but the thrust of … Read More

Sydney smolders. Smokestack lighting. Vapor trails off a high rise. Moments of wonder. Can I climb down twenty floors? Control burns like a necklace around the Big Smoke. Nature reminds us all of the inevitable. When we go it will … Read More

Sydney Journal Seven

No time for dreams here. Days too consumed for the freedom of random night thoughts. Install, lecture, install, meet up. Classified. “International Guest.” There are moments when the conversation lags and my other mind creeps in. I forget to ask … Read More

Sydney Journal Six

There is someone I need to mention who has nothing to do with this post. Someone put on this planet to endure. Put here to party, to explore, to make stupid moves, to fall in love from country to country. … Read More

Sydney Journal Five

Ten photographs. It was a ten photograph day. Total. A day of missed opportunity combined with muddled thoughts about the meaning of just about everything. Doubt. The ideal of a world we dream about but can’t fully know until we … Read More

Sydney Journal Four

A light day. Both in mind and spirit. Tasks. Duties. Movement. The back of my throat moving toward the angry side of the spectrum as my mouth moves in these situations far more than a normal day. The booth for … Read More

Sydney Journal Three

Heart shapes floating on the top of flat whites. Rain. Things are bright and pink here. Steel doors rolled back as downtown Sydney wakes one hour later than yesterday. A weekend. The chef is different too. This one a bit … Read More

Sydney Journal Two

It’s all about the party. Outside as the day progresses the light shifts from good to great. Hazy with a touch of yellow, even when the sun is high, direct and bright. Walking in a haze myself, looking at places … Read More

Sydney Journal One

I’m sitting in my upgraded hotel room starting to feel weird. I was in Europe for the past two weeks then flew home for a day and then flew to Sydney yesterday, or today, or this morning. I don’t even … Read More

Print: Press Print

Yet another cool publication from Chloe Ferres. This time a collaboration with her Raffles pals. Pages with vertical images, others with horizontal. The bleed through you see on one of these images is actually caused my by iPhone app. The … Read More
