Seen at the launch of the Next Wave Festival at the Meat Market North Melbourne - the world's largest smoke ring generator.

I ran into Jeremy Drape, Brian T and Alison X practising the latest trend called 'Dead Eyes'. Note the multitude of 'seaside bunts' in the background - that shit is everywhere!

I also saw my favourite artist and textile designer Holly Fluxx with two friends. Holly is taking part in a group show this Saturday as part of the Next Wave Festival. The show is called "Sports Club 1: Commitment and Sweat = My Personal Best" and will showcase sports-themed works by more than 40 artists including acrobats, contortionists, sound artists, dancers, photographers and a marching brass band.

"Holly Fluxx will lead an interactive aerobics session, performed in a full loop of the running track at 2pm, 5pm and 7pm, with portable speakers blaring amped-up music. Audience members will be recruited to join the performers, who'll be decked out in a surreal ''mash-up'' of remixed sportswear costumes.
"Aerobics is always performed behind closed doors, so we wanted to explode it out into the open," Ms Fluxx says. "It's going to be high-energy, hyperactive and confusing.'' Participants don't need to dress the part, but if there's a leotard lurking in your closet give it an airing."
I actually have a cheerleading outfit I found in skip bin in Ballarat. Maybe I'll bring that on Saturday?

My photo
I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
