Invigilating the space for #stanleydonwood #thepanicoffice exhibition at #carriageworks #semipermanent.

Stanley Donwood has been working with #radiohead since 1994. This exhibition presents thousands of @stanleydonwood’s works spanning across 25 years of his career (including his personal art as well as Radiohead album covers and associated artworks), accompanied by 18-day long unreleased music composed by #thomyorke.

Being a long-time Radiohead fan, I’m so happy to be a part of this exhibition. The works are incredible. The music is great. The whole thing is just seriously amazing! Thanks @carriageworks and @semipermanent! (at Carriageworks)

“At one’s first entrance into the school of waiting on God, their heart is chiefly set on the blessing which they wait for.

God graciously used our need and desire for help to educate us for something higher than we were thinking of. We were seeking gifts; He, the giver, longs to give Himself and to satisfy the soul with His goodness.

It is just for this reason that He frequently withholds the gifts and that the time of waiting is made so long.

He is all the time seeking to win the heart of His child for Himself.

He hopes that not only when He gives the gift will we say, "how good is God!” but that long before it comes, and even if it never comes, we will always be experiencing: it is good that a man should quietly wait.

“The LORD is good to those who wait on Him, to the soul that seeks Him.“ Lamentations 3:25

Andrew Murray, ‘Waiting on God.’

#SydneyBuddha by Zhang Huan at #CarriageWorks #Sydney 
Created with 20 tonnes of incense ash and standing at over five metres tall, Sydney Buddha is a meditation on the brevity of life and the cycles of renewal and destruction. Made of two parts: an aluminium sculpture and an ash casting of its interior. The works are installed facing each other, however, as time passes, one of them is destroyed. For over two decades internationally renowned artist Zhang Huan has examined contemporary life through an engagement with the traditions and rituals which are central to Buddhist, Chinese and Tibetan histories.

“SONG DONG: WASTE NOT 物尽其用”

Carriageworks, Everleigh, Sydney

Waste Not (Chinese: 物尽其用; pinyinWù jìn qí yòng) is an exhibit by Chinese artist Song Dong that displays over 10,000 domestic objects formerly owned by his late mother, who refused to throw anything away if she could possibly reuse it. She had suffered poverty during China’s turmoils in the 1950s and 1960s and had acquired a habit of thrift and re-use that led her to store domestic objects of all kinds in her tiny house in Beijing. After the death of her husband in 2002, her desire to hoard items became an obsession that began to have an impact on her standard of living. Song and his sister managed to alleviate it by persuading her to let him use her possessions as an art installation, reflecting her life and the modern history of China as experienced by one family.

- Waste Not, Wikipedia

Overwhelming display of one woman’s possessions and display of her beliefs in the philosophy of not wasting anything. I’m not a hoarder, but if someone were to display all my possessions in a similar manner, what story would it tell? What would yours look like?
