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.

This is a space for my personal ramblings, to begin taking myself out of the anti-netneutrality world.

#freethearts [bit belated but we were on the #nullarbor at the time ;)

#freethearts [bit belated but we were on the #nullarbor at the time ;)

An indigenous artist, a regional artist and a permanent resident artist took a trip across the nullarbor... While we were out of mobile range there was a protest against Brandis' decision to reclaim $105million from the Australia Council.

This decision will just cause more in-fighting as indies/SMEs battle for (already shrinking) financial support against the protected 'high arts' bigwigs. It'll also make sure activist and social change arts (ie anything that goes against govt propaganda) won't have any chance of funding at all.

The Arts need to be free to reflect and challenge ideas of society and control. If we let Brandis become the curator of the Arts, all that is gone (not to mention an incredible waste of resources by duplicating administration).

Just coz we couldn't join the noise on the day doesn't mean we didn't care, so we painted the hashtag on and grabbed a shot.

day1 #wwoofing at aldinga arts eco village

in a beautiful series of connected events, and I now have a new home-base. I get to park on an empty block down here in exchange for some WWOOF (willing workers on organic farms) labour. considering growing my own food is something I've dearly missed since I'm honestly not sure how I get to both and with this one! today was my first working day, mostly spent thinning out new shoots and weeding basil and spring onion rows. tomorrow we start planting. I'm in mud-fuelled heaven! :)

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.
