Hi everyone, I’m Kaya, currently based at the Gold Coast, Australia, although I’m about to relocate to Melbourne to begin a PhD in January, then to Reykjavik for a little while mid-year, so ‘location’ and ‘locating’ is about to become a bigger focus in my practice!
My practice & research currently focuses on a multitude of fascinations: travel/transience/relocation, packing/practicing/tessellation/acquisition-discardment/material processes, bitumen/high-vis paint/gravel/earth/dust/concrete, the list goes on. In-between all these interests are the lines, angles, graphs, dots, maps, diagrams… although I find myself constantly depicting spatial-relationships on paper or in flash/stills-collages, I’ll have to be honest – to actually stop and think and question these processes and how these ‘diagrams’ emerge is presenting a good challenge!
My attempt on ‘a life’ is the following:
It’s been really windy here lately with lots of gusts and breezes and I’ve been looking a lot at weather forecasts and how low pressure systems form…to give you some indication of how I began to approach this task.
but at the moment I am buried under end of semester marking so the diagram(s) below is more oriented on ‘my life’ as I’m experiencing:
Looking forward to meeting/interacting with you all next week!
