Inspired by everyday objects
Lithuanian artist Tadao Cern is inspired by everyday objects. He creates seemingly simple artworks that explore ordinary objects. Cern worked as an architect before transitioning to photography and then visual arts. Black Balloons was born from the experimentation of materials and the physical relationship between objects. The installation is conceived in various formats but earlier incarnations involved filling two regular latex balloons with two different gasses: helium and sulphur hexafluoride. He eventually worked out a way to make the balloons float in the middle of a glass tank thus the compositions grew in size and complexity. https://www.yellowtrace.com.au/lithuanian-artist-tadao-cern/

Thea Weiss: Creative Responses To The Holocaust
Thea is a studio-based printmaker and painter. Her printing methods concentrate on etchings, both on zinc and caustic soda on linoleum. Her paintings utilise encaustic and oils on wafer board. The inspiration for the majority of Thea's work has focussed on her memories, those of her American mother and her Czech born mother-in-law's experiences in the Holocaust. Her work utilises words and numbers, which have been relayed to Thea, both orally and in writing. Letters are stamped onto canvas, etching plates or wooden boards to replicate the stories told and the images interpreted. https://www.theaweiss.com.au/

Creative teaching
A clever creative teaching graphic adaptation of Yuval Noah Harari's bestseller. Easy to understand with full-colour illustrations. We learn about who we are, and how we got to be us. One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one-homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us? In this first volume Yuval Harari tells the story of humankind's creation and evolution, exploring the ways in which biology and history have defined us and our understanding of what it means to be "human". https://www.ynharari.com/book/graphicnovelsapiens/
