do it (adelaide)


Interpretation of Yoko Ono’s instruction:

Wish Piece (1996)

y.o. ’96

Make a wish.

Write it down on a piece of paper.

Fold it and tie it around a branch of a Wish Tree.

Ask your friends to do the same.

Keep wishing.

Until the branches are covered with wishes.


My instruction included in the publication:

To heal and be healed

Keep only happy colours

Use them to become strong in the broken places

And be a rainbow in a strangers life


At the Anne and Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, 13 February – 25 April 2015.



ARI Collab


What I should have told Daniel last night, digital print on paper for ‘ARI Collab’, Adelaide Town Hall, February 5 – April 3, 2015. Curated by Polly Jean Dance as part of the Adelaide City Council Emerging Curators Program.

From a series of drawings made on my phone where my secrets and regrets are typed, and then scribbled over with rainbow, so that I feel better for having them and ou feel better for never being able to know.
