Save the bees

@ VOL 25 ON AUG 22, 2019

Chandra MacDonald - Lilii Press

“The easiest way to help save the bees is to do nothing- don’t mow your lawn, your verge, don’t spray your weeds, don’t cut them down. Just sit back and relax, and know that you are actively supplying the bees with food”

My shop Lilii press was born out of my love for flowers and plants. There is something so magical about being able to press a flower and preserve its original beauty to be enjoyed all year round.

UWA IQX Space - Architecture & Design

@ VOL 25 ON AUG 22, 2019

Lee Syminton - Architect

Lee talks about the project of UWA IQX space. An innovative co-working space where we hosted Vol.25 PechaKucha Perth. 

The Masonic Hall in Nedlands is owned by the University of Western Australia. The hall is refurnished to house UWA’s Innovation Quarter Exchange, Offices, meeting hall and boardroom. The project was won under a competition run by the University. The building is of heritage significance and has been designed with minimal impact on the original fabric. The project includes a new lift shaft to allow disabled access to the second floor, the renovation of the original masonic temple into a co-working space. Careful design and work with the State Heritage office have resulted in an exciting fresh and respectful project.

Overhouse Project

@ VOL 24 ON MAY 16, 2019

MARK PARFITT - Lecturer, Curtin University in Perth Australia

Overhouse is an event that uses the home as a site for sculpture. Combining DIY construction, audience participation and the artist’s own house, this once-only show seeks to create shared stories and activities in the context of humorous building projects. Get ready to see neighbours go to new suburban heights! Overhouse aims to go beyond expectations of homemaking and ordinary living in the suburb of Carlisle.


Mark Parfitt's practice draws from sculpture as a process and how it relates to situated experiences within the everyday. Coming from the position of art as action, Parfitt produces autobiographical and participatory work in the form of documentation, performance and sculpture. Since 2004, he has exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions, featured in several institutional and private collections and has attracted the funding of numerous grants, residencies and prizes. Mark is the course coordinator for Fine Art at Curtin University, a member of the National Association for Visual Artists (NAVA), Artsource (Artists' Foundation of Western Australia) and a consultant for the City of South Perth Arts Advisory Committee.

Installation - When Are You?

@ VOL 24 ON MAY 16, 2019

Oliver Kellow + Lee Yang Yang speaking about there art installation built with Jacqui Britto as the Joy Artists Collective.

When Are You? is a fusion of the concrete and the ephemeral. Spatial elements consisting of opaque and mirrored panels suspended in serial progression. This arrangement affords fleeting glimpses of the destination, drawing the participant through the work.  As the final destination is approached it becomes clear that the flat image glimpsed at the outset is actually a parallax-distorted digital mirror. Projected on two angled screens, the image becomes warped and stretched as the viewer advances. Constantly dislocating from the regular passage of time, this fluctuating mirror asks the participant to reflect on their experience as the distorted reflection stares back at them.

Martin Michael talks about his business FUNK CIDER.

FUNK Cider opened its doors in 2016, offering unique and deliciously natural products which have since converted many new followers to the wonderful world of cider! Brothers, Dustin and Martin Michael, broke the norm by creating unpasteurised ciders that don’t contain preservatives or sulphites; essentially creating a living product. The cidery stemmed from their original business, Michael Brothers Cold Pressed Juice Company, and is driven by their original philosophy of creating only the most wholesome of products.
