S.N.O. elements

Hi there from Mildura.
It seems uncharacteristically unorganised of me to have left this so late, but today I finally managed to make up a box of elements for the second room of the I.T. exhibition at S.N.O., which opens this Friday. In the box is a mixture of elements that I think have some kind of interest/relevance.

Items include spray can lids, containers, boxes, a broken end of a measuring tape, a finished roll of masking tape, metal rulers, sandpaper, a dismembered part of an old sculpture and other recycled painted elements. NOTE: Included is also a plastic bottle top that Masato painted for the Ocular Lab installation (Jan 07) which instead of making it's way into the work, ended up in my posession...time to fold that element back in!
In collecting these items, I was hoping to perhaps open up the I.T. range of ephemera a little - in doing so attempt to attribute more emphasis on production, rather than finished formal values. For the collaborative panel painting, I have collected three fresco boards, and applied differing media to them. Intuitive gestures. Nothing more. There is however a link between the sculptural materials and the panels - in the media and the making.

Using the post meant that I had to keep the selected items fairly small and light. Perhaps those in Sydney can focus attention on larger elements, and bring all of the materials together at the end?
I'll wrap all these up and Express Post it this afternoon. Should be there tomorrow.
Apologies for making anybody nervous...the best I.T. projects have happened quickly anyway!

New York New York and meeting in melbourne in August

Hi Guys
I'm down for the Justin curated show from Monday 20th - Saturday 25th August. I am installing at RMIT Monday and Tuesday so any time and day between Wednesday - Friday to meet up and discuss stuff would be good.
I was speaking with Justin and I think we should consider making a work which is both a wall design but also is presented next to a table which has a free A4 poster (limited edition) that is given away + a folder layed out on the table of all the other projects. i think it would interesting to set up a dialogue where the work is both definative within its owns aims but is also transitional or in situ. I think this type of working model would really suit it. Also I think in the past we have tended to get further and further towards making definate objects within a given space and time frame, where this work can be considred either finished or transgressional. Also in new york there is a great space called the Drawing Room which I think we as a group should apply to do a kind of seminal planning room of inverted topology which could incorporate all facets of the group, our individual aims and also what we are attempting to say through the work. Also i think this form of open active dialogue is beneficial because we all have our own personal studio work and concepts/theories and I think making things like this would take the work into another area. Also I think at some point we should think about producing a book as a work for an exhibition instead of an installation.
Anyway this is my virgin blog. it's been a long time coming but finally got it out of the way.
cheers, Kyle

All is well that begins well and has no end.

Inverted Topology will be participating in a group exhibition titled: "All is Well that Begins Well and has no End", which opens on the 11th of September 2007 at 80WSE in New York.
This exhibition focuses on emerging artists working with the language of abstraction, seeking to expand and re-contextualize previous modernist notions of geometry. The curators of the exhibition are Jonah Groeneboer, Ernesto Burgos and Jan Van Woensel.
