The Art Of Julie Shiels

The Sunday arts show on ABC tv just profiled the Australian artist Julie Shiels. She is interested in all sorts of issues to do with perceived meanings, text, advertising messages and especially the cityscape of her neighbourhood of St Kilda, Melbourne. Julie adds text to discarded street items, or to the streetscape itself, photographs it and then blogs the results on her blog I Love St Kilda. As part of the process she tells the stories of each piece, or interactions she has with people while she's taking photographs.

Interesting stuff.
