Therese Rawsthorne’s Twin Peaks moment

Stunning show from Therese Rawsthorne at Australian Fashion Week. Not sure what I loved more; the flashes of colour, the beautiful prints, the great hair & make up, the excellent back-gathered pink pants, the orchids as fasteners, or the awesome Twin Peaks theme: complete with log lady and cherry pie.

Romance Was Born at the State Library of NSW

P346

Amazing show at the Mitchell Library kicks off Sydney fashion week for 2011. Complete with orchestra and children’s choir performing the theme from the Neverending Story… magical.

See the full gallery, and a rather bad video, on Posterous

How to Apply 2 – Design Symposium 2010

On Friday, I’ll be speaking at
“>“How to Apply 2 – Design Symposium 2010″

Design (Thinking) And Business
A Sydney Design 2010 Event

It’s a great initiative from Billy Blue, an annual opportunity to discuss the future of design, what we should be teaching tomorrow’s designers, and how we can bring art to business and business to art… I’m excited, but also a little terrified, as I am the last speaker of the day and it’s a 25 minute talk.

Walkley Media Conference 2010: What’s the story?

I’m speaking at the Walkley Conference this Wednesday August 11:

PANEL: What is originality?
Time: 4.20 – 5.10
Are there any truly original ideas left in the world? Is originality over-rated? Or does true creativity lie in reinterpreting age-old ideas? With the way that technology and media are moving, when does a mash-up, remix or homage become plagiarism? What are the implications for copyright and intellectual property in a world where anyone and everyone can and will collaborate?

The panel is chaired by Chris Warren, Federal Secretary of the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance, and also includes Sophie Cunningham, editor of Meanjin, and journalist Malcolm Knox.

I think my contribution will be to lower the tone and be a bit more pop-cultural… so I’m talking about I Can Haz Cheeseburger. Could be a disaster.

Iron Designer at the Powerhouse Museum

On Friday night I had a lot of fun as one of the judges of Iron Designer at the Powerhouse Museum, as part of Sydney Design 2010.
