Generative art in Italy

I will be attending the 2016 Generative Art conference and exhibition in Florence, 15th-17th December. I will be presenting a small version of my real-time work Nanocosm.


These conferences have been held every year since 1998, usually in Milan. This will be the first time I have attended one. The venue in Florence is the Auditorium of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze, Via Folco Portinari 5/r in central Florence. I think the photo shows the building!

Group shows

I am in two group exhibitions that open tomorrow evening (Friday 19th August). One is the Flanagan Art Prize at St Patrick's College Ballarat. Entry to the opening is by ticket, otherwise the show is free entry. Details at

I won't get to the Flanagan Prize opening because I am going to an opening to launch the Globelight festival in Melbourne. The Globelight festival is mainly about art that uses light, and is across two venues, Off the Kerb Gallery at 66 Johnston St, Collingwood (which is where my piece is, just a digital print this time), and the Abbotsford Convent not far away.

Globelight Opening 1: Friday 19th August, Off the Kerb, 66 Johnston St, Collingwood, 6-9 pm. Guest speaker is the artist Peter Kennedy, a long-time practitioner of art using light and one of the first Australian artists to work with light-based installations.

Globelight Opening 2:
Saturday 20th August, Abbotsford Convent, 6-9 pm. Guest speaker is Charles Justin, of the remarkable Justin Art House Museum in Prahran.

Artist talks: There will be informal artist talks at Off the Kerb on Sunday 21st August, 2-4 pm. I will say something about my work.

The exhibition at Off the Kerb runs until September 2nd. The exhibition at the Abbotsford Convent, which consists of works distributed across the grounds, will be open evenings until 10pm, 20-28 August. Information about the festival at
