#BushfireBrandalism

A collective of Australian artists disrupt the system by taking over advertising spaces to deliver messaging more relevant to the Australian public. Australia is on fire and it’s not normal.

Message from the collective, “We do not accept that this situation is ‘business as usual’. We are making these issues visible in our public spaces and in our media; areas monopolized by entities maintaining conservative climate denial agendas. If the newspapers won’t print the story, we will! #Bushfirebrandalism”

The Oceanmaker

The Oceanmaker is beautiful little short. It’s a couple of years old but is such a lovely story that it’s worth a share.

Check out the other short stories at Dust to get some thought provoking ideas and sci fi that often demonstrate storytelling much better than the blockbusters.

The Grot - Pat Grant

Portfolio

“A book that really thinks through one future, one kind of life that lies ahead of us, one kind of possible and feasible experience of life that climate change could bring to us” – Pat Grant.

Available online for free since May this series is best enjoyed via the physical copy that finally hit mailboxes this month. Available for purchase here.

You can really appreciate the love that has gone into every page as you explore beyond the story to the minute and exquisite detail immersing you in this future thought. I haven’t finished my copy yet, for me it’s too good to get through in one sitting, it needs to be savoured.
