Funding a Catalog

Posted in Exhibitions by robbiekarmel on July 23, 2014

I’ve just launched a Pozible project page to get some funding together for a catalog of my thesis to accompany my upcoming exhibition at Kudos Gallery in Sydney in October! You can pre-order a copy of the catalog or donate a bit more and receive a drawing as well, or one of my coveted wooden spoons!

Participatory Drawing in Melbourne

Posted in Drawing, Participatory Drawing by robbiekarmel on May 7, 2014

Over the weekend I travelled down to Melbourne to present my work at N/A Studios. I did a series of participatory drawing exercises with people, presenting some methods I’d used previously as well as experimenting with some new configurations.

I’ll be presenting the project again in Canberra in a few weeks, in Newcastle early October, and at my graduate exhibition in Sydney late October.

Thanks to everyone who came along and had a go! and a massive thanks to Sarah Kaur, George Rose, and NA Studios for inviting me down and hosting me, it was a fantastic weekend!

(sorry about the quality of the photos of the drawing, didn’t have ideal lighting conditions…)

Raus — Miles

Posted in Video by robbiekarmel on April 15, 2014

I don’t normally post this kind of thing here, but I made this video clip for my friend Raus’ new single Miles and I’m really happy with it.

It was made using 123D Catch to 3D scan Rory and his gear, and then put together in Maya.

You Are Here Paricipatory Drawings

Posted in Drawing, Participatory Drawing by robbiekarmel on March 24, 2014

Over the last two weekends I have been drawing in Canberra as a part of the You Are Here festival, I’ve built a table to facilitate my drawing experiments and have been working with people to make drawings.

A very special thanks you the You Are Here folks for having me, and to everyone that participated in the work.

I’ll be continuing to work with people and will be looking for people to draw with in Canberra and Sydney over the coming months.

Return

Posted in Drawing by robbiekarmel on February 14, 2014

Sorry I haven’t been updating recently, it got away from me while I was overseas. As part of my field I had an amazing time, I visited London, Leeds, Glasgow, Oxford, Copenhagen, Berlin, the Venice Biennale, and Shanghai. I presented my research and work at the International Drawing Research Initiative conference at Dong Hua University which was a fantastic experience, the work was very well received and generated some very interesting discussion of drawing processes.

Here are a few of the drawings I did while traveling as well as a couple that I’ve done since getting back to Australia.

I’m also going to be coming back via Shanghai to attend the International Drawing Research Initiative conference, I’m incredibly excited about the trip and will be updating this blog regularly with new work and my adventures overseas.
