Ashley Scott visual artist and musician
Everyday media in the form of catalogues and TV form the stock samples that Ashley uses to unpack and then re-present, in a new spatial form. Eloquent line drawings of domestic products provide a memorial to every junkmail catalogue
delivered to his house. Rich tile images are formed from re-processing random TV footage via a computer.

Lena Obergfell visual artist
Everyday a journey of finding new objects and locations. Lena collects discarded items heavy with their history and narrative and manipulates them to find a new meaning and context. In
‘Skeeheaven’ a suitcase on springs serenely snores, while in a video entitled ‘Mana Island, Viti Levu, Fiji’ two ancient vacuum cleaners engage in the process of putting together a holiday jigsaw puzzle.

Julie Vulcan visual artist and performer
Everyday for a month in 2007, Julie tasked herself to leave a note in a public place and to take a random photo on her mobile phone. At the end of the day these two references were logged, resulting in a random collision of image and text. ’30 Whispers and other ordinary acts’ is part of a
practice that engages in acts with unknown outcomes, leaving trails and planting metaphorical seeds.
