And we’re off! Our Digital Odyssey has begun…

In this blog, artist-in-residence Craig Walsh documents his journey around and across Australia. He is travelling with his partner, artist Hiromi Tango and their daughter Kimyo in the Digital Odyssey motor home, a Coachmen Class A Miranda fitted specifically to the needs of an artist. Kicking off from his departure from Brisbane, the artist’s ongoing diary provides insights into his artistic process, behind-the-scenes stories and no doubt some tales of adventure – a combination of ingredients that contribute towards this Digital Odyssey.

From packing up their home in Brisbane to trialling living conditions in the motorhome, sorting and packing essential items for the project to testing all the necessary equipment, the artist and the MCA have been working hard to meet the deadline.
