Images from the 2016 workshop

South by Instinct – RAY FIRTH

No matter what, every picture tells a story. Each image is, in some part, a recipe for the construction of our world. It is a theory of everything, however imperfect the painters understanding of that theory and schema might be.

Every painting is a map. It is a conversation, a confession; thoughts, however naive, directed from one mind to another. Each and every painting is a statement of viewpoint and bias. It is an image from only one particular point of view. The hope, however, is that the image has some part of wisdom woven into it!

I yearn for the bright and the open, the windswept, and the rocks burnished by time. I want to know the lichen and the dust and the plaintive sigh in the casuarinas. I love the mystery of the night sky and what it does to the land. I love the quiet in unseen places, hidden by shade and solitude. I love the deepening mystery of every tiny part of this marvelous place.

That love, however, needs to understand and map the world of our experience. It is our task to remember and know the numinous, the wondrous, the beautiful, and to pass that on forever.

Restoring Lake Pedder – Tasmania’s Next Big Idea?

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT.

SUBSCRIBE TO OUR MAILING LIST OR ‘LIKE’ US ON FACEBOOK TO BE NOTIFIED OF WHEN THIS DISCUSSION WILL BE BROADCAST ON ABC RADIO NATIONAL BIG IDEAS PROGRAM. 

In 1972 Lake Pedder in Tasmania’s south-west wilderness controversially was flooded to build a dam.  Since then, there have been unsuccessful calls by a range of environmentalists, scientists, politicians, artists and community activists to drain and restore the lake. In 1995 a federal parliamentary committee examined this idea and concluded restoring the lake was technically possible – but too costly and politically difficult to recommend.  Two decades later, a volunteer group called Lake Pedder Restoration is pushing the proposal back on the public agenda. After the game-changing impact of MONA on thinking about what’s possible in Tasmania – is restoring Lake Pedder the big idea we should embrace next?

Join us at Wild Island at 5-7pm on Thursday 1 December for a panel discussion about draining and restoring Lake Pedder.

Speakers:

  • Natasha Cica (moderator) – Director of Kapacity.org, author of Pedder Dreaming: Olegas Truchanas and a Lost Tasmanian Wilderness, and co-editor of GriffithREVIEW39: Tasmania – The Tipping Point?
  • Peter Thompson – Broadcast journalist and educator
  • Saul Eslake – Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Tasmania, former chief economist of Bank of America Merrill Lynch Australia and of the Australia & New Zealand Banking Group
  • Ruth Langford – Yorta Yorta woman and member of Tasmania’s Aboriginal community
  • Richard Eccleston – Director of the Institute for the Study of Social Change, University of Tasmania
  • Emma Anglesey – Tasmanian musician
  • Luke Wagner – Landscape painter

The event will be recorded for broadcast on ABC RN Big Ideas.

Places are limited and tickets can be purchased online (scroll down to book).

small wonder – Gerhard Mausz and Alex Miles

Beautiful textures, colours and light, extreme and unpredictable weather, unusual and ancient plant and animal life – they all give Tasmania a unique and mystical character. This exhibition of work by Gerhard Mausz and Alex Miles is their response to Tasmania’s unique natural environment.

Alex’s bold prints and kinetic installations explore the things we feel (wonder, curiosity, anticipation, trepidation) when we’re immersed in a wild place – small figures in a big landscape. Drawn from memories of family adventures and school trips to places like Maria Island, Tasman Peninsula, Dove Lake and Mount Field, her colourful, pattern-based work is made with a young audience in mind (and the young at heart), inspiring them to get outside, embrace adventure and imagination, and discover and value Tasmania’s special places.

The fluid forms of Gerhard’s Hammerschlag Series and terrazzo sculptures reflect his fascination with Tasmania’s marine life encountered while snorkelling, surfing and camping. His natural curiousity compels him to explore. These sensual forms evolved from pushing the boundaries of his practice – using a ball hammer, each object has been hit 15000 to 27000 times to give a unique, sparkling hammer finish.

Ocean Plastic – Not Fantastic

Have you seen the confronting images of dead seabirds full of plastic debris? Beyond the media-induced shock, what is the science and the story behind these gruesome images?

Join Dr Heidi Auman for this informative evening, where she will explain the physiological and toxicological impacts of marine plastic debris on seabirds from her own research. You will also hear from Matt Dell, one of the coordinators of the South West Marine Debris Cleanup that is carried out each year on Tasmania’s remote wilderness coastline. For the past 15 years, a dedicated team of volunteers collect, count and sort nearly half a million items of marine debris. Learn more about the clean up team and how you can be involved.

Beverages will be available by donation, and all proceeds from this evening will go directly to supporting the 2017 South West Marine Debris Cleanup.

About the Speakers:

Dr Heidi J Auman, PhD (Adjunct Lecturer, IMAS)
Heidi has studied human impacts on seabirds for the past twenty-five years. She has explored plastic ingestion in subantarctic and Tasmanian seabirds, chemical pollutants in Great Lakes birds, and the effects of junk food on urban gulls. She has demonstrated that our ecological footprint has reached the farthest corners of the earth, often with disturbing consequences. Recently Heidi found that 96% of Tasmanian muttonbird chicks were full of plastic debris.

Heidi is also the author of educational children’s book Garbage Guts, which details the challenges Aria the Albatross and her ocean friends encounter due to marine debris. It has become a call to action to preserve some of our planet’s most fragile habitats for the wildlife that depends on them.

Matt Dell, Environmental Scientist
A cartographer, photographer and keen surfer, Matt has been involved with organising the South West Marine Debris Cleanup in the Tasmanian World Heritage Area for over 15 years. He and fellow coordinator Dave Wyatt lead a team of up to 20 volunteers who, as a not-for-profit organisation, receive funding from public donations, crowd funding campaigns, and partnerships with like-minded organisations.

Marine debris is trashing some of our wildest beaches. We’re absolutely committed to fighting this toxic wave of rubbish that’s choking our oceans and destroying our marine life. We need all hands on deck to tackle this crucial issue, and help protect Tassie’s globally renowned wild places, over 80% of marine debris globally is derived from the land, we need to stop the rubbish at the source – Matt Dell.

All proceeds go to the 2017 South West Marine Debris Cleanup

Collaboration for a cause

A presentation by Biologist Rachael Alderman and Photographer Matthew Newton

Rachael will talk about what it is like to be a biologist working on remote islands with Tasmania’s mysterious Shy Albatross and why this work is so important.

Matthew will explain the issues associated with documenting science projects in remote and challenging environments.Together they will discuss their successful collaboration that has resulted in large scale exhibitions around Tasmania and numerous publications nationally that have launched the new Tasmanian Albatross Fund into the public arena.

This talk will examine the many benefits that flow when science and art work together to collaborate for a cause and how visual story telling can engage a new audience, attract philanthropy and drive social change.

Who should attend
• Science professionals and students interested in telling their stories
• Nongovernment organisation, marketing and communications staff
• Communications and education staff at government agencies and universities
• Program directors, curators at institutions
• Photographers
• Concerned citizens, activists and change-makers

Feedback

I have taken photos for as long as I can remember! I have a Diploma of Photography but really hardly any formal training. In 2015 (May), I attended the Bay of Fires 5 Day photography workshop. As we approached the Lodge a pod of dolphins surfed, we photographed ‘cotton wool’ water that night as well as an AURORA and milky way at 7.30 pm. I saw sunrises that would bring a tear to your eye, rivers more beautiful than I have ever seen before. I saw the moon rise as the sun did. This beauty combined with the expertise of of Rob and Loic and no other commitments provided the PERFECT combination to grow, learn and improve no matter what your level. Rob and Loic were fun, informative and helpful and I can’t wait to do another workshop with them.
