Monday the 13th

A great morning of listening and reading..amidst the flurry of adrenalin as i await my latest guitar purchase… more on that when it comes. but today i re-read Roland Barthes’ “Listening”… where he discuses from his primary thesis “Hearing is a physiological phenomenon;Listening is a psychological act” amidst listening to a mix of Pablo fredes, […]

PICA’s prototype process

Inhabited Space transcends Geometrical Space

Trooping back into the space today i got a chance to snap the surroundings a little.  PICA is a great looking building nestled within the cultural centre of Perth, just beside the Western Australian Museum, the State Library and the Art gallery of Western Australia.  All great places to visit and definitely worth mentioning is […]
