Research output: Non-textual outputs, including Creative WorksCreative Works - Live Performance


This presentation was part of the Biennale of Sydney's curated Pecha Kucha, event held at Superdeluxe@Artspace on June 17 2010. The presentation was a visual summary of a project which explores the nature of tourism, truth, fiction and the depiction of Australian culture and society through collected tourist ephemera. It built on and extended PhD research which investigated the field of interpretation design and the role of design in communicating and framing ideas about Australia's natural and cultural heritage into a visual arts practice for exhibition venues. SuperDeluxe@Artspace was a gallery venue, drop-in lounge, and orientation centre for the 17th Biennale of Sydney: THE BEAUTY OF DISTANCE, Songs of Survival in a Precarious Age. The 12-week program was co-curated by SuperDeluxe Tokyo, KDa, Namaiki, Joni Waka, Artspace and the Biennale of Sydney. PechaKucha is the onomatopoeic Japanese word for 'chit chat'. It was devised by Tokyo-based architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham for SuperDeluxe Tokyo in 2003. SuperDeluxe was established in central Tokyo in 2002 as a performance space for experimental for music, art, culture and independent ideas. PechaKucha has a simple presentation format: 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each. They are forwarded automatically, keeping presentations short, snappy and fun. For the first time in Australia, SuperDeluxe was based in Artspace for the duration of the 17th Biennale of Sydney. By popular vote, the Biennale of Sydney has won a Sydney Music Arts and Culture (SMAC) Award for SuperDeluxe@Artspace, in the Best Arts Event category.
