Self and Boring Others

Self and Boring Others, 2014

No Difference At All - Uganda

No Difference At All is based on R. D. Laing 1961 book, Self and Others (seen in the top work). Eminent Italian graphic designer Germano Facetti designed the cover. R.D. Laing was a Scottish psychiatrist who wrote extensively on mental illness. The World Health Organisation considered homosexuality a mental illness until 1993. Using Facetti design of Laing’s book cover, No Difference At All highlights that sexual preference within the LGBTI community is no longer considered a mental illness by most western countries, however countries such as Uganda recently have imposed harsh anti gay laws and continue to label it as a mental disorder. The three circles are the colour of the Uganda flag. The red circle of the work is a mirror where we see a reflection of ourselves, noting that there is no difference at all, legally or medically between any of us. We are all the same no matter what our sexual preference may be.

I am Australian is based Marcel Duchamp cover design for the Surrealist oriented publication Minotaure No 6, 1934. Minotaure was published between 1933 and 1939. The magazine focused on articles relating to Surrealist principles and theories, architecture and also contained the first published essays of the famed French psychiatrist and philosopher, Jacques Lacan (Vol. 1 & 4). Duchamp cover utilizes modernist principles of simplicity and lent itself to the redesign of the aboriginal flag. Alfred Deakin was Australia’s second prime minister and instrumental in the writing of the White Australia policy.

How to Avoid Modernism – Ulises Carrión

Pencil on Graph paper. 2012

Ulises Carrión is credited with being one of the first artists to write a general theory about artists’ books. His influential essay, ‘The New Art of Making Books,’ written in 1975, analyzes the traditional form of books in the context its tactile, visual, and intellectual merits. Carrión’s work with visual and concrete poetry expanded the use of the book as a medium for artistic expression that uses the page as an alternative gallery space.

The Australian Aboriginal Flag is a flag that represents Indigenous Australians. It was designed in 1971 by Aboriginal artist Harold Thomas, who is descended from the Luritjapeople of Central Australia and holds Intellectual propertyrights in the flag’s design. The flag was originally designed for the land rights movement, and it became a symbol of the Aboriginal people ofAustralia.

The symbolic meaning of the flag colours (as stated by Harold Thomas) is:

  • Black: Represents the Aboriginal people of Australia
  • Red: Represents the red earth, the red ochre and a spiritual relation to the land
  • Yellow: Represents the Sun, the giver of life and protector
