Shedding Light on Paradise

@ VOL 20 ON APR 18, 2014

Alison Beste's photographs explore the boundaries between the built and natural world using light effects on the ocean horizon. Light from cities, vessels, and beacons become powerful metaphors for the ways in which we interact, manage, and attempt to control the environment. In Hawaii, where expectations of an organic paradise collide with an often-manufactured landscape, Allison's work scrutinizes the tension between nature and artifice. Alison uses light to examine how constructs of nature and the artificial are interrelated, ambiguous, and mediated by culture.

Puppetry in Paradise

@ VOL 20 ON APR 19, 2017

"All creative journies start somewhere. Mine began in a paper cutting workshop..." 

In "Puppetry in Paradise" from PechaKucha Night Cairns Vol. 20,  Danielle Henderson is trained in theatre, performance and media arts. She is a passionate entertainer, writer/ storyteller and occasional singer living in Cairns, Far North Queensland.  Since becoming a mother her attention has turned to visual art forms, specifically Scherenschnitte, or silhouette paper cutting. Her work is exceptionally detailed and has a pure uncomplicated visual appeal which lends itself poetically to shadow play. In 2013 Danielle wrote and performed I Live Here - a shadow puppet theatre experience for children.
Seeking more colourful and less solitary creative engagements she has more recently facilitated a community arts project for children and families. Her latest work is pushing her interest in puppet making into 3 dimensions.
