About : This eBook is by Artist David Capra a participant in Lattice::Sydney. David Capra is a visual artist and sculptor, who recently returned from a year-long excursion around Europe where he received the Piemontese del Mondo Arts Award sponsored by the region of Piedmont, Italy. He has also been a finalist in the Qantas Spirit of Youth Award both in 2006 and 2007. In 2006 he was named one of Australia’s top 25 young artists by Art and Australia.
As part of the Lattice::Sydney project a simple Sketchbook was produced to explore the projects and ideas being generated in the workshop. It was created on the Generator and printed out so that it would be filled in by hand – with space to write, draw, glue and attach. The resulting books are scanned in and remade into eBooks to be shared and distributed.
Lattice::Sydney aims to explore new approaches to creatively transforming our cities and included a workshop with a diverse group of artists and cultural leaders to produce new ideas, perspectives and plans of action. Lattice is part of Proboscis’ larger Lattice East Asia exploring the ways diverse communities engage with their environment and issues of cities and sustainability; viewing the city through the eyes of those who live in it. Lattice is part of the British Council’s “Creative Cities” – a three year cultural and artistic partnership between East Asia and the UK.
