Our 8th invited speaker in the 2016 PSM Guest Lecture Series is Jamie North.

Jamie North combines the waste products of industry and native Australian flora and plant species to create sculptural installations that explore the simultaneous concurrence and conflict between man-made architectural structures and the biological world. Initially working with photography, North’s interest in native plants and their ability to survive in the most unlikely circumstances led him to experiment with cast concrete and the by-products of mining, using industrial materials to create poetic sculptures that become miniature landscapes; microcosms where native plants grow and regenerate, gradually reclaiming seemingly hostile environments.

This lecture, like all in the series, is free and open to the public. It takes place this Monday the 30th of May, 6.15-8pm. The location is UTS Building 6, 702-720 Harris street, level 3, room 22.
