Last week we were in sunny #Brisbane for Women on the Wall. A week-long MG initiative that saw three female Indonesian artists alongside an MG female artist check out the Brisbane street scene, meet some of the best talent the town has to offer (LOADS!), hang at @jugglersartspaceinc, run some workshops, hit some midnight walls (@instaguss🤘) and, perhaps most excitedly, create a new work: UNAPOLOGETIC. Two Brisbane female artists from @bsafest joined us to share their experiences as female street creators, how they can be empowered and enabled to be the most dynamic creatives possible, and create a new collaborative work at @urbanparadisegallery. Full visual narrative by @sparklehorse_ on our website soon!
Huge thanks to @kedubesaustralia who made this project possible.
@ketemuproject x @rumahsanur collab is @slinat’s Wheat Paste After The Street workshop. 2-4pm, Saturday 24 March.
The beauty of street art is that you don't need an expensive canvas or frame to display your work. Slinat, a well-known Balinese street artist, creates most of his works on walls and uses recycled materials as his medium.
Wheat paste is one of the weapons used by street artists to paste images on walls. Activists and various subculture proponents often use this adhesive to flypost their pieces & artworks.
This workshop invites participants to create a work using the tide patch technique, onto a medium (cardboard or cloth) by using wheat paste, and you can paint it with spray paint typically used by street artist to make your own artwork from your own photos.

Plastic Bride - As much as I try to keep a positive energy about this...the latest news that 90% of bottled water has been found to contain plastic micro fibers similar to the ones found in marine life...not exactly uplifting. Looks like plastic is closing in on us. The @who is reviewing the findings.
The French scientist Etienne-Jules Marey (1830 -1904) was one of the pioneers in the development of moving images.
He was fascinated by the movements of flying birds. In order to document this he build a shotgun-like camera that could make multiple exposures on the same negative.
In 1890 he published the book The Flight of Birds with pictures taken with this camera (image 2). It had huge impact around the world and inspired scientist and invetors like Edward Muybridge to make motion film. So without birds we might not have had cinema or netflix! 🦅🎬🎥
