THE GIANT POSTCARD – 2011

I wanted to build a giant postcard that people could get inside. So I did, with some help from Jack Batty. I made prison bars for the front, as if you were trapped in it! I had been feeling trapped by my association with postcards, also I was thinking that Alice Springs was trapped inside a postcard version of itself. There were a revolving set of backgrounds that people could choose to have their photograph taken infront of. People didn’t go for the prison vibe. We took the giant postcard out to Wide Open Space festival and took the images below.

I wanted to perform in it as Alice Springs: Victim of Representation, but that never actually occurred. I did subsequently perform in it as Julie the fontune teller, and then some sock puppets delivered a panel about ART in it. Now I believe it is the disco yoga shrine of Alice Springs minor new-age celebrity Foxy Yogini.
