You Are Here 2015: Sculptural Experiments

Posted in Uncategorized by robbiekarmel on March 30, 2015

Last weekend I was in Canberra for the You Are Here festival, I presented work at the third overnight event at Canberra Museum and Gallery. This year I did an initial proof of concept of something I’ve wanted to do for a while: extending participatory art making into sculptural work.

The process was built on the participatory drawing exercises: I massages and prodded participants faces and heads as they manipulated the clay bust in direct response to my input.

Hopefully I’ll have an opportunity to present this work in a more complete and sustained context soon, I’d love to do a developing series and display them as completed works.

A big thankyou to the seven people who participated in the project:

Shane Parsons

Reuben Ingall

Anna Reeder

Yasmin Masri

Morgan Little

Hannaka

Luke Jaaniste

The Drawing of Bodies and Things: Exhibition Thesis

Posted in Uncategorized by robbiekarmel on October 19, 2014

I’ve turned my exhibition thesis and a lot of the documentation from my masters project into a book! The Exhibition Thesis/Catalog will be available at my upcoming exhibition, I also plan to set up online sales for it soon, along with a free/by donation download of a PDF.

I really hope that people will read this along with looking at my work and get something out of it, I certainly think it will deepen people’s understanding of the drawings and my processes. 1

Tests

Posted in Uncategorized by robbiekarmel on August 18, 2012

These are some test sketches I did using a 3D drawing program Reuben Ingall has been working on for me. It is currently in early stages and I’m hoping to develop it to a point where the output is three dimensional.
