’A New Hope' is a challenging metaphor for everyone affected by the tech age that still considers some developments today as normal in our culture, traditions and society. We are not programmed well enough to foresee what the exponential technology can do to our society. How much are we going to pay for all bad decisions that we are making today? ‘A New Hope’ digs deep into our worst nightmares and what could happen if we loose control over those exponential tech advances. This video depicts how popularity mixed with power can easily transform our society into unpleasant and dangerous place. We have a high hope that our collective consciousness will drive us to a much brighter, safer, happier, inclusive and prosperous place.

Kim Leutwyler (@carlosbob) is a visual artist based in Sydney, Australia. She works in a variety of media including painting, installation, ceramics, print media and drawing. Kim’s current work takes its form in paintings dealing with images of beauty, gender and Queer-identity. She has come to focus on painting as a medium because of its primarily masculine history in the western art canon. By entering into the modernist painting field Kim hopes to destabilize gender borders just as LGBTQ artists have been doing since the 70’s and earlier. Her artwork has been exhibited in multiple galleries throughout the United States and Australia.
Young Australian artist Olympia Antoniadis welcomes to her inner world. Voyeuristic and playful, Antoniadis allures the viewer into quiet spaces exploring the domestic territories of others. Her work is commonly based in the bedroom where one finds them self in a familiar space, intimate and calm expressing the most benign potential of human life.
Antoniadis' fixation with fabric lends itself to the moulding and fleshlike nature that envelops her subjects, softly building forms and provoking a playground of possibilities. Her paintings are often focused on the mundane where common occurrences are shifted and provoked by the figures that emerge.
The era might have been old New York’s last real gasp — a time when the very streets, dirty and unsafe as they were, seemed infused with possibility. Here, notable locals revisit their routes and routines, from lunch on the Upper East to nighttime sojourns to then-emerging neighborhoods like TriBeCa. - NYT

As part of NGV Triennial, twenty large-scale new artworks have been commissioned by the NGV, including Ron Mueck’s Mass 2016–17, a monumental work of extraordinary presence comprising 100 individual skulls.
"Mass" is an installation of 100 individual human skull forms piled up on the gallery floor, each which engage with the architecture of the site.
"The installation brings to mind the massed remains in the catacombs of Paris, an imposing wall of human heads that resonates with a simultaneous and strange sense of impermanence and eternality. In ‘Mass’, Mueck celebrates the form that links all humanity and pays homage to a symbol that has stood within the art of essentially all cultures and religion. surrounded by skulls covering nearly every surface of the walls, visitors are reminded of the transience of life" via designboo

Australian artist Rebecca Hastings "draws a line between the technological suffusion of first world childhood and environmental neglect .. The children in Hastings’ works are strangely ambiguous: simultaneously of this world and alien, contemporary and futuristic, childlike and ageless. They could be representations of the real, or they could be fantasy humans like those created in the digital quest for verisimilitude — the quest that has given us the term ‘uncanny valley’ to denote the point at which the synthetic human’s fine differentiation from the real causes abjection."
"Australian photographer Murray Fredericks’ long relationship with Lake Eyre, where his most recent series Vanity has been produced, commenced in 2003, and to date consists of twenty journeys to the centre of the lake where he photographs for weeks at a time in the vast and infinite landscape. Fredericks is not interested in documenting the literal forms of the landscape. He views the landscape as medium in itself which, when represented in a photograph, has the potential to convey the emotional quality of his experience and relationship to the lake."
Murray Fredericks's Salt: Vanity is on view at Hamiltons through June 14, 2017.
