STUDIO 6Greedy Hen
Greedy Hen have been asked to DJ at the Throw Shapes relaunch as a blog night at World Bar, Wednesday July 1st.
We'll be merging with We Buy Your Kid's to form a mega super DJ team of extreme clashing musical tastes and Artistic glory.
We imagine WBYKs v's Greedy Hen will sound like the clashing of Nordic Dark Magical Beard Metal v's Footrot Flats soundtrack.
so basically it'll be equal portions horrible / fantastic, possibly even brilliant.
Also playing that night is our favourite calamity jam band Megastick Fanfare!
At Greedy Hen we like FBI Radio a whole lot, their musical musings make us feel all warm on the inside.
so to help them continue to spread the love and stay on air, we'll be exhibiting work in a charity Art auction at the Museum Of Contemporary Art, July 3rd,
with some of our favourite creative contemporaries including the likes of....
KRIS MOYES, THE KINGPINS, MS & MR, TARA MARYNOWSKY, WEBUYYOURKIDS, ELKE KRAMER, JAMES HANCOCK, SAMUEL HODGE, MARK DREW, and a whole lot of other rad artists we dig immensely.
all Art will be auctioned off at the MCA and online.
All proceeds go to keeping FBi Radio on-air.
Elke KramerANOTHER MONTH!
- We shot our campaign for LOOK TWICE, our new amazing SS 09/10 jewellery collection, in the big BJB studio 9.
It was a rather late night with lots of Peroni and outfit changes, but the results were a roaring success.
Here are some preview images and some behind the scene shots.
- I have been invited to participate in the 'remaking of crockery for Eat Green Design', an experimental design/cafe project run by the Powerhouse Museum for their Sydney Design Festival. The amazing Greedy Hen girls are also involved and we are busy coming up with designs for the crockery to be used by the temporary customized restaurant.
it runs from the 1st - 16th August, and you can eat off our plates, enjoy the space and listen to talks by environmental innovators and designers
- I have also been invited to be part of CLOUD19, an exhibition that will be part of Melbourne's 'The State of Design Festival', on the 15 - 25 July, at the Preston School of Industry. Opening night is Friday the 15th of July for anyone in Melbourne.
The exhibition follows a ‘not one style religion’ manifesto, a place where no specific style is set but a collaboration of different styles and forms. Its idea is to create an unexpected visual landscape of design pieces, to promote the ultimate state of happiness.
- Off to Bali again! I will be working on production development for LOOK TWICE, beginning to design and sample next AW10 collection for both hemispheres and also to ride motorbikes besides glowing rice fields and swim in the ocean under an apricot sunset.

"Colour holds a special place in our collective consciousness. Different colours signify different things for each of us and when we see colour around us many factors affect how we interpret it, including cultural and personal preference. the presence or absence of colour in our daily dressing conveys something about us, something we might be choosing to communicate through our choice of colour or lack of colour. colour therapy is a series of photographic explorations through high intensity colour worn in ways that we don't often see around us and how this might inform the reality of our daily environment."
