The ‘Mortlake Bank’, in the background, was a ‘ 60 miler’ collier taking coal from Newcastle, NSW to the Australian GasLight Company works at Mortlake, NSW. The ship of 1375 tons, was built by Swan Hunter at Wallsend, England in 1924 and scrapped in Oct 1972.
In the foreground is the SS ‘Ayrfield’ 1911, formerly SS ‘Corrimal’, another ’60 miler’ on the same gasworks run, scrapped in 1972..The ship now supports a magnificent mangrove colony.
The SS Ayrfield is one of many ships decommissioned in Homebush Bay, west of Sydney. Built in 1911 in the UK, and registered at Sydney in 1912.
It was used to transport supplies to American troops in the Pacific region during WWII and retired in 1972.
With bugs and other animals crawling along the ground, camping is not the ideal holiday for everyone.
But, as these pictures show, those who live in fear of creepy-crawlies might now think again about taking a holiday in a tent.
These tents are designed for floating camping and are pitched about five feet above the ground.
Architect Alex Shirley-Smith, 36, invented the bizarre tents which are designed to be suspended at chest height, with three ties attaching them to trees, pulled tightly.
Although they may look flimsy, each three-man tent is designed to support almost two tonnes in weight – so there’s no danger of falling back to earth with a bump in the middle of the night.
The clever design is based on the same pattern that a spider uses to build its web – building support up from a series of three points.
Mr Shirley-Smith from north London, said: ‘I first developed the idea after thinking that it would be great to be able to build my children – who are one and two – a treehouse for when they are older.
However, it was pretty difficult to make a treehouse if you don’t have any trees in a built up area – so I thought I’d make one that I could pick up and take with me.
‘It took about two years to fully develop the idea, and nine months to build once I had started actually constructing the tent.
‘All the hard work was worth it, though, because my family think it’s brilliant and my daughters already love playing in it.

carnovsky was commissioned to create a site specific installation for missoni featured within the italian company’s milan showroom.
appropriately called ‘zigzagging’, which speaks of missoni’s classic stripes and geometric motifs, the piece followed in the same vein of
the milan-based studio’s previous works, this time using the fashion house’s fantastical patterns as their image source
in which to apply their RGB experimentation.

Forest’ is a large interactive musical laser installation. Commissioned by and premiered at the STRP Biennale in Eindhoven, this giant interactive forest covers almost 450 square meters and is composed of over 150 musical ‘trees’ made of rods and lasers. The audience can freely explore the space, physically tapping, shaking, plucking, and vibrating the trees to trigger sounds and lasers. Due to the natural springiness of the material, interacting with the trees causes them to swing and oscillate, creating vibrating patterns of light and sound. Each tree is tuned to a specific tone, creating harmonious sounds spatialized and played through a powerful surround sound setup.
The installation is designed to bring out in adults those feelings of curiousity and wonderment which are so alive and evident in children.
Forest exists as a tourable interactive installation, open to the public, and also a performance. The performance premiered at the STRP Biennale opening, consisting of 12 local children between the age of 8 and 12 years old. They were choreographed to move around the space, strumming and triggering the lasers and sounds.
A dozen dancers, aged 8 to 12, from the Netherlands volunteered to give a wonderfully choreographed routine in the installation.
