The Powerhouse Museum and some of Sydney’s leading creative minds are taking 3-D printing to a delicious new level at the Museum’s Eat the Collection after hours program on Thursday 30 May.
Eat the Collection will explore the evolving world of digital fabrication technologies. Ten creative industry professionals, ranging from architects, industrial and graphic designers to artists and sculptors, will be designing a new 3-D object drawing inspiration from one of the most extensive museum collections in Australia. But there’s a catch; the designs will be printed in chocolate using a 3-D printer. Read all about Eat the Collection @ The Powerhouse Museum →

I took a few months off. I needed to re-frame what this raffle is to me. My friends noted that if I keep raffling my best work, I would have nothing to show! I understand that but I still need to raffle pieces that people want. Though…what people want, I have no clue! I hope you all find Vines pretty.
If you’d rather buy tickets in person come into the shop, The Infinite Everything, Shop 16, The Connection Arcade, 162-172 Church Street, Parramatta.
Any support through buying tickets or even just looking at my work is more than greatly appreciated! It helps me eat vegetables, travel to my job (which I only make what art I sell) and of course buy more art materials.
The winner will be announced Sunday 5 May 2013. I will be posting a video up as always. Have fun, good luck and see you then.
Check out these two awesome events at ABP starting next month!

The first in Brickstarter, a book from Helsinki Design Lab which looks at how crowdsourcing and crowdfunding could be applied to the built environment. The second is a sustainable urban development project in Helsinki initiated by Sitra called Low2No. Read all about the Events at ABP →

New drawings and installations by Ryan McGennisken.
‘She’s the Moon; Perception in the absence of stimulus’
In this new stunning body of work, ‘She’s the moon; Perception in the absence of stimulus’, Ryan explores mental illness in women, in particular hallucinations associated with schizophrenia. His drawings describe scenarios of hallucinations that are suspended between ambiguous states of fear and comfort, leaving the viewer to determine the circumstance. After, coming back from a residency in Finland and having a successful show with partner and collaborator Hollie M Kelley in Berlin last year, Ryan’s nomadic experiences have propelled his work down a darker and conceptually well rounded path based on his explorations in rural travel and family members that had been diagnosed with mental illness, in particular schizophrenia. His drawings are magical as they are unsettling, full of emotional dichotomies.
Please join the artist on Friday APRIL 19 for the opening of his first Melbourne solo exhibition, which will also include performances by bands EM VÉCUE AQUAIEU, HOUSE OF LAURENCE and HOTEL WRECKING CITY TRADERS and the solo vocal talents of GOLDWYN. Gallery opens at 6pm, music starts at 7pm.
