These photos are from one of the group diagramatizations of an echo. We came to this with several conflicts and halts in our process – but managed to produce an initial diagrammatic attempt:

The task is to:

1. take post it notes and extend the echo-diagram from the image above by placing post it notes that extend this relationship of forces.

2. Consider how this echo resonates outside of this diagram (and this photo, and your screen..) into your surroundings and create a new diagram or extend this one?

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!
