“Spoonville” Villages by Children
During the first wave of the coronavirus we saw of Teddy Bears everywhere. The new waves of community spirit, popping up around the country are gaggles of spoons, adorned with googly eyes, pipe-cleaner arms and feather hats. Creating these spoon villages or “Spoonvilles”is a lockdown craze for kids and adults alike. All you need to start one is some publicly accessible land, a sign reading “Spoonville” and a character or two. It’s then up to others in the neighbourhood to make their own cutlery and join the crowd. Seen in Mort Bay Park, Balmain.

Putting risk into perspective
Industry leaders have come together to debunk myths surrounding the AstraZeneca vaccine and encourage Australians to get the jab. @TheFactsination has been launched to ‘fight fear with facts’, an initiative bringing to life creative ideas to address Australian AZ hesitancy, including ‘The A to Z of things more likely to kill you than the AZ’. The creative content on the campaign was carried out by Good One Creative. The creative combines ‘internet facts’ and humour to highlight ways you are more likely to die, than the risks associated with getting a shot of the AZ vaccine. https://www.instagram.com/thefactsination/?hl=en

Most photographers seek to reveal, Gerwyn Davies attempts to conceal
ARTIST GERWYN DAVIES combines traditional costume making, studio staging and digital interventions, the human figure is removed from conventional representation and other selves are assembled. Bodies are adorned and choreographed for the lens, their glistening, textured surfaces entice while their hefty costumes distort and conceal. The double bind of a figure both conspicuous and nowhere to be seen, hiding in plain sight, triggers the work’s investment in queering the act of representation and renegotiating the terms of visibility. This age of endless self-imaging, these works explore the potential for self-presentation that emerge on the stage of the digital image. https://www.gerwyndavies.com/
