It’s a small world. I’ve had SO many cases of 7 degrees of separation and coincidences in my life that they rarely surprise me anymore. What I tend to do these days is just acknowledge that I’m not in control of my own life, and to just embrace these instances.

On my recent trip to Africa I met Jane, who, on returning to Sydney, let me know about an art show that a good friend of hers Chen Lu was putting on at yuill|crowley gallery in Potts Point. She thought Chen and I had a lot of things in common, and that we’d get along. She sent me a link to his web site, and to my surprise I had just visited his site a few weeks earlier when I was looking for site design inspiration. The site was made by Zann St Pierre, my Australian INfront business partner, small world!

I invited my Spacewalk team mates to Chens show and we made a day of it. Chen designs objects, furniture and spaces. From his site:

In each project Lu starts with Malevich’s black square and within the boundary of this infinity he questions or proposes another way of seeing and experiencing our relationship with the world around us.

When Lu applies this exercise to objects they develop an ambiguous function. Lu’s objects invite interaction intended to stir the users’ imagination. The abstract forms challenge object-memory, promoting creative thinking and personal insight.

Lu has produced works for Hermés, Paspaley Pearls, Monument Magazine, Vogue Living, Belle, Art and Australia, Billy Kwong (Surry Hills), Simon Johnson, Bill Granger, Ondene, Broached Commissions, Ullens Centre for Contemporary Art (UCCA), and Yuill Crowley Gallery.

Chen is awesome. His work is too (find lots more of it on his site linked below). All photos above by Nick.

Hanging out with one of my kind tonight. At some stage (after a fair bit of red wine) the eBay tattoo kit came out to play (lol) and Kristi jumped at the opportunity to give me some ink (apparently she’s wanted to tattoo herself/someone for years!). She did a WAY better job than I did on myself last time! We shot some stuff too, will share some of those next week.

At first I started out taking inspiration from Pink Floyd’s iconic ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ album cover art, then Star Wars started making it’s way into the layers… it’s all good, right?!

Had a lot of fun making this! It’s a collab between Studio Photographer Nick Turner and I. Nick shot Luci Fang in the studio, all blue, and I did my thing in photoshop.
