Routinely Unseen

Behind the Tiles © Françoise Muller-Robbie

Member Françoise Muller-Robbie made a post to Facebook the other day that had me intrigued and filled me with awe.

I've decided to title this post "Routinely Unseen", inspired by Françoise's method in making these, and many of her other images.

Françoise is often someone who finds beautiful images in everyday scenes. She does this by looking at the view in front of her camera from different angles, and sometimes capturing detail where others would take the whole scene in front of them. Her current series of work is a very cool example of this.

The images presented here were taken at Flinders Street Station in the underpass and the other areas where these tiles are used throughout the station. Sadly many of the tiles, which have likely been there for decades, are now marked for removal as part of the station's upgrade, it makes us grateful that Françoise has seen and captured these before their demise.

"Routinely Unseen" are the images we pass by everyday while in our routine of living our lives, never stopping to see the beauty around us hidden in the detail. Françoise has seen them for us on this occasion, but we can all find these images around us if we slow down a little and take a look.

Workshop: Paper Bag Challenge

Always a fun-filled night, our annual Paper Bag Challenge is on again. What will be in the paper bags this year?

At this meeting, members work in groups to make images, on the night, featuring the item/s in the paper bags they are given. No one knows what will be in the bags being given to the groups. It's always exciting to see each of the groups working to make something wonderful to present for peer judging by the end of the night.
