  1. Practicals and Methods 2. Intuitions and insights 3. Freeflow
  Day 2 of Workshop 1.
Ellenbrook tour, Midland town centre walk-around, then collective brainstorm.
Feedback from the silent walk. Everyone has their own view/experience. Only two of us were exhausted by it. For me this may be partly having the overseeing role, part sensory-overload.

In the lunch slot I had some insights about ‘framing’ the experience up to then. The Powerhouse represented complete authenticity, Ellenbrook complete in-authenticity. Public art [in Ellenbrook] as decoration not provocation. We have four locations to consider working with – Perth City, Ellenbrook, Midland town and the Powerhouse. It all became clear.

Allowing lots of space for idea-generation in the afternoon gave collective ownership for Day 3. Have no axe to grind.
Ray arrives in the minibus. We’re going to Ellenbrook. Only one of the 10 has been there before. I experience a sense of physical suffocation and mental haze the longer we spend driving around and stopping here and there. Ray is an erratic lurcher occasionally hitting kerbs.

We go to Charlotte’s Vineyard, an area/village still under construction. The white picket fence is up on one side of the road, with individual entrance-ways and letter boxes, but nothing beyond. The group is very taken with this image. Picket fence as Australian symbol of security. We visit schools and lakes. All deserted. And this is Sunday.
