Newtown All

It’s an honour be exihibiting at Black Coffee, a cornerstone of Newtown through it’s ebbs and flows.

Newtown All is an attempt to observe the ways we shape the world around us, and how small anonymous actions can impact others’ experience within a space.

Attaching a visitor pass to the crossing outside the hospital can encourage dozens to join in a shared rebellion. Posters are put up almost as often as they are torn down, their transitions marked by the hundreds of staples left in the powerpoles across Newtown.

Changes like these come and go, surviving for a moment or building on top of each other to create something new. They serve as a constant reminder of the ability we have to empower the places we love, or mess with the places we hate. I hope that you can take these thoughts with you and create some small changes of your own.
