Word sculpture by Alex Woof, Amelia Calantzis, Catriona Calantzis, Elleni Karafilis, Rebecca Luhur and Rosie Wood. It was displayed at the recent Living Laneways "Handmade" market at Rockdale.
Its creators say:
"The word sculpture began its life as a national Youth Week 2013 workshop in Rockdale City Library. Under the guidance of artist Kelly Pearce we discussed which words were meaningful to us.
AUTHENTIC, ORGANIC, INDIVIDUAL, FORTY-TWO
"We ran our words through a barcode generator and over six sessions created four panels with our words and their corresponding barcodes. Barcodes turn everything including the authentic, the organic, the individual and forty-two into a number.
"Barcodes are everywhere. They're unavoidable. They can turn everything into a number....This is our way of reclaiming those words and their meaning."

The area of the Cooks River along the Princes Highway that marks the northern boundary of the City of Rockdale, where is adjoins Marrickville Council is pleasantly landscaped, and a popular cycleway. From here you can cycle west toward the Olympic precinct at Homebush and east towards Botany Bay.

This lovely Japanese lady stands outside a vintage camera shop in Newtown called "Smile Please".
They have a Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/smilepleasesydneysuper8mm.
I took in my Pentax K1000 to get a new case, and walked away a very satisfied customer. Now I'm keen to use it again after many years. Have to think of a special project worthy of it.

Victory & Lore, specialising in these great prints inspired by the area in which we live.
I was really pleased to see them at the Living laneways market in Rockdale yesterday, despite the cold, blustery weather.
