We were approached by our collaborator, Graeme Smith, to create a special piece of artwork for RealTime's 20th Anniversary Cover. RealTime is Australia's critical guide to international contemporary arts. Their focus is on innovation in performance (live art, experimental theatre, dance, music, sound), photomedia, film, video, interactive media and hybrid arts.
"Graeme’s brief from the editors was to create an image that celebrated the hybridity that has been the focus of RealTime’s attention over two decades. What he and his collaborators came up with was the miraculous transformation of copies of the magazine into another form—hand-crafted, intricately woven paper masks which become the faces of the editors who are at once themselves and an enduring publication.
Keith and Virginia.
Managing Editors, RealTime"
