Too much good stuff here.

Leaning Tower of Eiffel

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Have arrived in Paris for September. An early arrival saw the dawn of a perfect day … Even if it was 32 hours door to door . The shuttle from the airport to the Marais apartment was an excellent way to see Paris waking up. With the iPhone camera this blog will be updated as much as possible. Walked forever today around the Marais district and ended up at Chez Janou for an early evening meal and some Bordeaux red and just sat there watching Parisians doing their thing. Such a refined tribe. And I want a bike. A pushie with a battery please so the Creme Brulee is whisked away in good time.

Reading this fab book at the moment. Fascinating if you are into art… Especially art history. Thanks Liz for the tip

Wierd sky. Such a profound hole in the cloud for the sun. Waiting on a break in the sky for some Sydney aerial photography

More Red by Tim Mooney

There seems to be a lot of red coming to mind. I just stumbled on this pic and it’s a few years old. Vivid red. Good soil. Good toil. Plant a nail and grow a crowbar.

Back at the Myocum School of Sculpture I took some pics for the wrap up of their first term. I love this piece that Helen (student) is putting together and will review it again next term:

Byron Bay ArtsCape by Tim Mooney

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

I made another dash up to Byron Bay to cover the ArtsCape Biennial and get more progress images for Samantha Welch’s Myocum School of Sculpture.
Artscape finishes on the 11th July 2010 and there are some great pieces to see along the walk to Clarks Beach.

Cambodia: logos online and bikes – by Tim Mooney

Friday, February 5th, 2010

A very old friend Pauline Johns is doing great work in Cambodia. Pauline is a regular in a certain area of Cambodia where poverty is the norm. Currently Pauline has been working on a few projects: 1. To give bicycles to deserved remote children, and 2. To help establish a school for these needy children.

Two too cute !

Two too cute !

I’ve been lending a hand via email designing a logo for the new school and another logo for an accompanying activity. The great www has no boundaries. Pauline is on her iPhone over there and has the full thing under control. I play with Illustrator and Photoshop and backwards and forwards we go until the local powers approve what is presented. Its fun.
Its a long way from Sydney aerial photography but when you see the photos of these underpriviledged people and their very soft natures why wouldn’t one help. Take a look for yourself:

Just another brick in the rebuild process by Tim Mooney

Rebuilding is fun ... but can be done without

Rebuilding is fun ... but can be done without

I remember hearing this famous Pink Floyd song time and time again and thought that I understood it. Now on the recovery road from being a little ill I realise that the rebuilding of one’s health is an art form.
When our immune system gets messed up its not just a matter of getting better. Its a matter of analysing all the parts and softly testing how they can best go back together.
So all our education history comes into play and we have to biologically relearn how to be in balance … its a long road.
Hey teacher ! Leave those kids alone!
