fee

In 2011 Fee gave up her increasingly respectable career as a creative digital consultant in order to take up a new life as a bus-loving nomadic geek artist. In a reaction against the shift in global politics, she set out to discover how someone could disconnect as much as possible from a broken socio political system while maintaining meaningful connection to the people and places which enable her own vision of home and self.

Her work explores the increasing removal of ‘the commons’ in contemporary life, from common land and open democracy through to open source creative digital commons, and the tensions which exist between them.

i'd heard from a grey nomad early last year that there are more single female nomads than single males or couples (I assumed she didn't mean including grey nomads or tourists :). I hadn't met any thus far, tho I do tend to choose quiet places where possible.

Tonight, while parked at what seems to be Perth's only remaining 'overlooked*' beach parkup (while rigging more of hJ's windows with mozzie screens) ... one of these mythical entities introduced herself and her van, Bongo.

Her van is also a Toyota and she shares my Grandad's surname. And she came to say hi coz she'd 'seen me around before' - turns out there's an doppelganger around! I've seen a photo, it's spooky!

Obviously that went extremely well :D

*tho not for long as it's apparently been sold to a commercial car park co.

 
 

I really love my :) nice old fella comes over to "gawd they build 'em tough in WA!" (re me wearing a vest top). "I'm from UK, and she's [the bus] from SA. I thought the weather had been nice here" "SA? I ran up Mount Lofty, oooo, would have been before you were born, 1953. Coldest weather we've had since i've been living here- 43 years [melbs]. The wind is coming off the melting icecaps" "Yep, you've gotta watch that climate".

so I should be delighted that appears to be running fine again. instead, I'm gutted I'm not in the desert.

 

desert trip postponed while I find out if ' gasket has gone. looks like possible oil in radiator. FARK! (...tbc...)
