Lloyd Godman: A PHOTO: synthetic pathway

Lloyd Godman: A PHOTO: synthetic pathway traces the evolution of the artist's practice from traditional photographic techniques through to his innovative suspended rotating living air plant sculptures. Through parallel practices as artist and organic gardener, and making a connection between photosynthesis and the role of light in photographic practice, Lloyd Godman presents living plants as 'super-sustainable' sculptures. There is a strong environmental thread that binds his diverse oeuvre then opens a portal to conceive the planet as a 'giant living abstract photograph' with a consequential shift from environmental art as comment to environmental activism.

Keepsakes and curiosities -  Deakin's desk drawers exhibition

Something new is coming to Deakin campuses – a snapshot of the last 40 years of Deakin history built out of the things we use most often. Did you know Deakin were inter-university sporting champions in 1995? Or that lectures were recorded all the way back in 1989?

For the past six months Deakin staff have been scouring their cupboards, cabinets, and yes, desk drawers, to find the old, the weird and the wonderful Deakin memorabilia they've accumulated over the decades.

Check the dates for your campus and come see the history of Deakin in a whole new way.
