Power and vulnerability
A great day discussing participation and collaboration. Was great to hear Natalie de Vito, festival director and creative producer, Junction Arts Festival talk about some Mammalian Diving Reflex projects. Thoughts of the day centred around ownership, looking outwards, authorship and bravery. And we got a free lunch - Thanks Arts House.

and they said nice things about my design:
"Paula van Beek‘s imaginative lighting design providing a story in shadow play on a shimmering fabric screen."
Critical mass - Brisbane culture blog - By Flloyd Kennedy
"...extraordinary lighting by Paula van Beek.....Van Beek essentially became a puppeteer and Tyas Tunggal her puppet..."
Canbrerra Times - Michelle Potter June 18, 2013
"attractive and accessible, and strongly supported by the mixed-media design elements by Paula van Beek, and the sense of aridity and ancientness conjured up by a welter of dust."
Peter Burdon - adelaidenow May 10, 2013
"...exquisite lighting and live projected images without which this performance would not be possible. Paula van Beek’s lighting is an integral part of the performance.."
