So excited to be a contributor to the second issue of iPad/iPhone mag Open Field, a very cool project by Kirsten Alexander and The Royals with all profits going to CARE minus only the iTunes fee. I wrote about the very wonderful Sydney-based artist Nell and her brilliant body of work from bronzes to performance art.
Open Field's second issue centres on the theme of place with work from 30 women from around the world. A genuinely global cast of contributors includes an all-girl high school band from Geelong call the Sweethearts already playing massive festivals; Turkish writer Elif Shafak; New York-based Lily Brett and Kyoto-based Dawn E. O'Day.
Open Field is a fantastically rich reading experience. The digital team behind it are really pushing the boundaries with digital publishing with exquisite video content; interactive visuals (particularly of the artworks featured) and lush typography. Reading it is a very sensory, creative and inspiring alternative to your conventional print mag. Not bad for $4.49. Download now!
