Exhibitions Day

I can’t believe that I went to 4 exhibitions today. After the super nice Yum Cha (I ate a lot, seriously alooooot , after that I felt abit sick), we went straight to Middle Park for the Southern Cross Packaging Exhibition.
The result was released last week and I didn't win >_<. I was quite confident of my Davy Jones box and expected that I might get something, but I didn’t. I was abit upset and diffident last week. I was even questioning myself if I can survive in the industry after graduation. Well, after going to the exhibition, my confidence was back! Of course there were some excellent works. Some of the winning works were definitely worth to win, but some just… Sorry, I couldn’t get the ideas behind through the 4 pages rational or the unpolished mock ups. I am not being cocky or what, but Gene was right, my Davy Jones was the best of the table. I felt big relief after seeing the exhibition, because I am actually not worse than the winners.
After that, we went to the Narrows for a photography exhibition. I love the way they present the Polaroid photos. Each of them was framed in a large format Polaroid film container. Such a clever idea, use what they had.
We met Warren at the gallery and he told me that there is an interesting paper craft exhibition at kick gallery, Northcote. The word ‘paper’ urged me want to go there so bad. So after going to Ian Potter for the contemporary art exhibition, I head off to the kick gallery, which actually I’ve never been to there and had no idea how to get there. I only know there is a train station call ‘ Northcote’, so at least I can go there by train. Surprisingly, I didn’t get lost at all. I was just following my feelings, turned right if I felt like to (just like random walking) and I made it. The exhibition t was called ‘…while you were sleeping’. It’s a nice name. I totally agreed, while normal people were sleeping, we were creating our (fabulous) works. Paper craft wasn’t the main part of the exhibition, there were also some lovely illustrations, paintings, sculptures and hand crafts. They were so dedicated and sweet.
Here was the day of exhibitions….

Okay back to photography, finally I finished up the film which has been in my camera for almost 6 months, and here are some highlights


I think many people know, I have a thing to red.
