Pamela @ White Night / Reflections

Yesterday I was in total zombie mode after Thursday night. I had to vaguely have my wits about me though, as I was working to a grant deadline and had a bunch of other stuff to do that requires a moderate amount of brain power. I watched a bit of TV - Dr.Phil, and this show called 'My Crazy Obsession' that detailed a couple's obsession with Cabbage Patch Dolls. It was so wild, they had over 5000 cabbage patch dolls, and this particular one they named Kevin was treated like their child and they spoke in like a voice for it and stuff. So good.

My opening on Thursday night went well, and I was so overwhelmed at the amount of people who popped in! As always, it's such a warm feeling to know that people are interested in your and your practice enough to leave the house and TV shows like 'My Crazy Obsession' to come to your opening. SO a big genuine thanks to everyone who came along. The show runs until the 16th of March and I will be working in the space occasionally so we could chew the fat, and make collages together.

Still feeling like I need another day close to home to process the happenings of the past week, but I better snap out of that quick smart because tonight is WHITE NIGHT in Melbourne, and Pamela - the band that consists of Georgie, Jon Campbell and I, will be performing at the National Gallery of Victoria, Federation Square! I am actually pretty excited because I'm going to wear my special marbled dress (again) and... do do do, MY WORK is going to be projected above us as we play! It's going to be super 60s and fun. We play a mix of Jon Campbell originals and 60s pop songs, we are playing at 7pm in the foyer of NGV Fed Square (The Ian Potter Centre) - outside the gift shop (They're putting up a stage and stuff). Darren Sylvester is going to be performing after us! SO EXCITING! It's totally free and you should definitely pop in as a part of your White Night festivities. Here we are on the Thousands so you know I'm not lying http://thethousands.com.au/melbourne/calendar/white-night-melbourne








Above are some of the projections I put together. It was fun because I went through a whole bunch of really old work. Below are some pictures from my show and opening. No-where near good representations of it, just phone pictures. More will come soon. I just love the last one, there's a bunch of people contributing to the collage and the collage wall :D Feel good!
