The sun set, a full harvest moon rose, the Wollemi Standing Stones surrounded us and the Cudgegong Valley surrounded the stones. We travelled from day to night, from Winter to Spring through the song of //transcript// and were transported

Who would have known there were so many people who knew so little!

Our heroic Creative Director has agreed to completely forego his unkempt identity in a last ditch, desperate effort to raise the Cementa fundraising cause. Who else would he go to but the virtuosos of vanity, the gurus of glamour, the masterchefs of the absolutely fabulous, The Motel Sisters? Watch his transformation from rustic bearded earnestness into a superficial celebrity superstar!

Cementa’s creative director, Alex Wisser stands in the middle of Angus Hall, the original community hall of Kandos and talks nervously about all the dreams and aspirations we have for this space. He also reads from a teleprompter the entire time, which is very endearing and gives his appeal a human touch

Last session Telematic Studios paired the artists, asking them to each take their partner’s project and reimagine it as their own. The idea was to give each artist the experience of first seeing their beloved idea reshaped in the image of another artist’s approach to the world and second of taking the other artist’s idea as a foreign object introduced into their own practice. Afterwards we talk with Beth Dillon and Keira Simmons about how this experience played out

After another brilliant session in the studios, Alex and Christy settle down with Maize Wallin and Kath Fries to talk about communicating on the interwebs and other mysterious phenomena

We’ve had our first Telematic encounter, and it was a solid good start. There are some really interesting people in and out here. While what happens inside the studio will be the private business of the artists, we have arranged to interview two artists after every session in order to give everyone else a taste of the adventure. Our first interview is with Karen Golland (Bathurst) and Louise Salter (London)

So we called out and the artists called back and from this most basic form of communication, The Telematic Studio was born. It was just like the opening scene from 2001 Space Odyssey. Exactly like this.
