Friday March 2
Woods St Gallery- Darwin On A Whim
An experimental collaboration with local band Green Stone Garden and local digital media artists. This exhibition will be a performance that combines music with photographic projections!
Green Stone Garden is one of those bands whose name couldn’t be more fitting. Their songs grow stories; like the dense and rapid growth of the Darwin wet season around them. Bass, drums, synth and guitar underwrite Mike Meston’s lyrical narratives.

Landscapes in miniature
1. Orogeny
Crush this mile thick sand
then tilt fold fuse — the scarp screams
silent syllables
his ridge reclines
It climbs and declines
Strata and syncline
niature euros
bound pads unmarked on paper
4. I
se lines of contour
suggest landscapes of abstract
5. H
existence of
here depends on those peaks by
bearing grid backward
