Tetris in Live Lanes

If you head down Abercrombie Lane, off George St (next to the cinemas) you may be in danger of being hit by a falling tetris block. Installation art by Gaffa Gallery artists and project team: Kelly Robson, Ella Barclay, Hugh Rutherford, Adrianne Tasker, Ben Backhouse. They write: There are grand implications of error here that lead to questions, such as who exactly has been playing Giant Tetris? What were they trying to do? Could I have done better? Is the city grid similar to a computer game or different? What brain-space am I in when I’m playing games on my computer? Is it more or less alert than when I’m waiting in line for a sandwich? The work...

Sydney: Numskull Show

If you’re in Sydney this Friday and looking for some free beer and a bit of art head down to the MTV Galleries in East Sydney and check out the Numskull show. These tend to get quite crowded, quite quickly, so as with any gallery opening the early bird gets the free booze and the late comers get to stomp around all desultory and emo like while they try and convince their friends to finish up their drinks quickly and head on up to the Brighton or OAF. If you’re not familar with Numskull, visit his...

The Urban Cookbook – Recipes for the Graffiti Generation...

Came accross this in my favourite Sydney bookstore, Ariel, the other day. A pretty novel concept – combining two of our favourite things in the world: Art and Eating. The author put this book together over a great excuse for a trip around Paris, Berlin, and Amsterdam to London and New York. His road-trip rules were to use public transport, eat street food, and stay in cheap, locally run hotels. All of which allowing him to focus on visiting underground-art-type places, people and events that are seldom covered in traditional culinary or travel titles. There’s fifty recipes including such tantalising urban dishes as:┬áJerk chicken with hot pepper gravy, Ras-el-hanout lamb, Trinchada, Potjiekos and Rajad’s perfect steak. I’m hungry...
