Winton residents and visitors can view Craig’s artwork on displays over the coming week at the Digital Odyssey project hub –  the old Capel shop in the Main street of town:

6.30pm – 11pm nightly, until Wednesday 16 June

1pm to 8pm daily, Thursday 17 – Saturday 19 June

Craig will also be documenting people as a part of the Who’s Average project, at the Winton Show, Saturday 19 June.

Who’s Average is a new project Craig began working on during his residency in Murray Bridge, South Australia. For this work, the artist is collecting photographic portraits of people from Digital Odyssey residency communities across Australia. Members of the public are invited to stand for their portrait behind two horizontal lines. These lines represent the national average heights of both male (178.4cm) and female (163.9cm) adults. As the artist explains, the objective of collecting these portraits is to celebrate the diversity of our population in contrast to the generalisations established through ‘statistical averaging’.

Winton community can be part of the project by visiting the photographic tent that will be set up in the afternoon and evening at the show. Get involved and become part of this amazing Australia wide project – documenting individuals from diverse communities and contributing to broader cultural mapping across the country.
