I love the old wharves around the inner Sydney Harbour and Heather evokes those memories:

Docklands' creaking wharves - timbers silvered by salt-caked sea and sun. Giant trees felled and planted again dead in the depths creating squealing platforms to lauch form edge to edge. Great carcasses rust along side the shimmer and tinkle of yachts and shiny faces baked. You can feel the rank smell of burbling mud, alive with crusty hermits, when the edge shifts in time with the ebb and flow of the great ocean's moon walk.

Its also where all the debris washes up, the tidal flotsam, the litter against the edge of the fence.
I like the idea of flotsam and litter, allows a bit of wrongness, a bit of edgeiness into the discussion.
The edges of  piers are always fascinating, the possibilities of jumping, the edges of different materials touching, colliding, interacting...rust and rot...the stain of time and weather.
In Permaculture theory the edge - the zone where systems interact - is vital and is the most productive place. Examples of edges include the place where water meets the earth, where the garden meets the forest, where food meets the edges of the stomach or where people from different cultures, political positions or locations meet.

.........from THE EDGE

The coloured drawing at top of CPM blog has been modified by The Shadow and is hanging in the workshop. This means that approx. seven artists have contributed to the one drawing so far.

Heather Matthew had the idea of publishing an ART ZINE (A5 booklet of artists'works) in March and is thinking of using this drawing for the cover.

All CPM members are invited to contribute further by drawing over, collaging on to, painting out, etc., to make this a truly collaborative (not competition) CPM drawing FROM THE EDGE.

If you want to blog the image after drawing then photograph it and post it on the CPM. site or send to Tamsin or Michael. If you wish to become a member of the CPM blogteam, again email Tamsin or Michael

More over the edge

Here's a pic that looks over the edge, not that inviting to jump. Like the idea of text, but on hold because Greyhounds are getting in the way of this project.

Future ideas involve painting.
