Lauren Marchbank, I am okay with it, 2017, 2.31 minutes.

Lauren Marchbank is an emerging performer and contemporary dancer, who has worked on numerous solo projects, including with STRUT Dance.

Mentored by Laura Boynes, Lauren’s piece for Mixed Reality directly confronts her own fear and fatigue at being constantly looked at. Acting as a kind of personal therapy and exploration, Lauren places herself in a crowded space, employing dance as a means to navigate and liberate herself from her anxieties.

Sarah Pollard, On the Farm, 2017, 3.22 minutes.

Sarah is a young emerging West Australian artist whose practice currently explores digital comic style animation and drawing.

Focussing on her own representations of landscape and home, Sarah’s works for Mixed Reality, although still in development, are bright and intimate reflections on her connection to her rural home. Working with virtual reality Sarah’s works are currently directed to blurring reality and non-reality, morphing representations of her farm and her distinctive fictional animal characters into a single dimension.

Part of my work for the Mixed Reality project was to get all of the artists together at the Underground Studio at the State Theatre Centre of WA to work on their presentations to get ready for showing their work on the big screen to family and friends and the DADAA team.


 

 

 

 

 

To be working with the artists has been amazing. I get to help them on goal setting maps and to put it in their presentations. I am so proud of them all doing amazing work of making their work with more support.

I was the DADAA MC for work training on Thursday November 30 at the State Theatre Centre of WA.

All day.

I got to talk about what’s going to happen on the agenda and I showed them my goal setting map with stepping stones as an example to teach them my way that I did goal setting with the other artists in the Australia Council SYNC leadership.

I explained to the DADAA team how to do a goal setting map so they can do it for themselves and to help other artists that need help with their careers.

And I asked DADAA team members to share their goal setting maps with us.

Putting their big dream in the middle of the paper and stepping-stones all around it.

I also asked some DADAA team members to come on stage to talk about what they do for DADAA.

Presenting their individual DADAA pathways to an audience of over 40 people, each artist shared their visual and digital work.

Feedback was extremely positive and the artists are looking for other opportunities to tell their stories.
