JERK: The Domestic Circuit is a spatial involvement project by Andrew Simmons which aims to temporarily transform Articulate project space into a demonstration of how his private domain operates. The work is a setup of sculptural assemblages and dividing units which are all connected to represent the hidden circuitry of a household and the appliances which function within the home. It is an evocation of sedentary behaviour and an upheaval of privacy which results in a construction of low, dark and narrow spaces to create a sense of being trapped and vulnerable at the same time. The use of circuits to distribute water, electricity, air and light throughout the home is a representation of how one almost has a complete connection to an outside space without ever having to leave.

Andrew Simmons has recently finished three years studying for a BFA at the National Art School in Sydney and is now intending to develop his interdisciplinary practice with focus on installation and performative art. His work investigates communication and construction between private and public spaces and how people respond to situations which involve change and direction.

 Beata Geyer LEMON (Form Drawings) 2014 is an installation that explores an emergence of form in the intersection of line, space and architecture loosely based on the series of my recent drawings. It also references my previous project LEMON (Ian Millis Project) 2013 shown in Artspace.  The materials used are: rope, coloured paper, paper tape, canvas fabric, stretched canvas, wood, plastic, acrylic paint, bulldog clips.

Christine MyerscoughTelegraph 2014. Australian landscape is criss-crossed with a network of telegraph poles. If you look closely you will find that each one has a number. This series is works in progress exploring the fine detail with a wider outlook and the intersection of technology and industry with the natural world.

Margaret Roberts Multitude 2014. Katarzyna Kobro's Spatial Composition 9 is usually represented by a particular three-quarter 'side-on' image. Multitude 2014 is a type of expanded film or photography, or neo-cubism, as it selects flat shapes made by photographing the round Spatial Composition 9 from some of the multitude of other positions possible, and returns a rudimentary three-dimensionality to them through their interaction with their materials (plywood, fabric, felt, texta & paper), the architecture and the gravity in which they are placed.

Jacqueline Spedding, Night Song, 2014 
I am interested in cultural interpretations of nature and how they determine our understanding of our physical selves and the environments we inhabit.  For this work, bare branches, broken down garden pots, terracotta pipes and insect remains evoke a subterranean and emergent landscape within the project space, exploring the transitional space between nature and culture.
