Artist interviews

During Melbourne’s COVID-lockdown restrictions, we did not know if people could meet our artists. So we created a way to make that happen, no matter how far anyone could or could not travel.

Hosted by Will Tait, we talk to our artists about their work, their inspirations and these past 2 years.

Please Take One is an evolving network of community-contributed audio pieces. These pieces explore the internal worlds of everyday artists and creatives.

Wesley Dowling: Network

Network is an interactive website. It accumulates the window sizes of web browsers that visit the site and transforms them into an endless scrolling feed.

You can contribute to the work by visiting the website and clicking or tapping on-screen. The website captures the size browser window you use. It then transforms your browser into colourful window panels that you can explore by scrolling.
