Harbinger Consultants

Culture + Complexity + Change

PUBLISH | Our work in eARTh eMag


We have two articles in the latest issue of eARTh eMag. John has contributed a piece showcasing Harbinger’s work with Leah King Smith and Lucas Salton at North Lakes Bus Station. John describes the role of public art in placemaking and stresses the importance of undertaking detailed site investigations that enable interpretation and awareness. John also provides insight into the creative and curatorial thinking that has shaped the public art strategy, highlighting the ways in which artists have responded to the context. He writes:

North Lakes Bus Station is a destination and a starting point within the daily round of many people. The way-marking for this place should welcome and refresh as it is glimpsed and passed, yet hold a deeper aspect, inviting contemplation at quieter moments, and over time. The artworks function for casual engagement as well as for contemplation in line with the varied use patterns of travellers at the facility.

Linda has also contributed an article about the Long Time, No See? project, which is now screening at The Cube, QUT. In providing an overview of the project, she stresses the participatory aspects of the project which are intended promote reflection about futuring, sustainability and place: “The project intentionally grounds people in place eliciting and sharing ‘micronarratives’ of care and commitment”. More information about recent work on Long Time, No See? is now available at the project blog, including feedback from our recent workshops at QUT.

eARTh eMag is a labour of love by editor, Sandra Conte, who positions the publication at the intersection of art and environment. The vision is to provide an insight into how art can activate positive change and to bring together the community that is doing just that. The magazine is freely available online.
