A/D Day 2 began with Feature Artists: CJ Hendry, Mr. Penfold and Meggs – I was admittedly pretty keen to see this, particularly as it was the first time I had had an opportunity to hear Meggs speak after his relocation to San Francisco. This session complemented the Next Gen session of yesterday – allowing creatives to learn what can come of hard work, sacrifice and following your dreams. These talks would have provided food for thought for a number if people in the room – CJ Hendry sold her entire wardrobe to have 12 months off work, study, everything, to pursue her dream. Now, she is killing it with a US show scheduled for later this year and sell out shows here in Australia.
Analogue/Digital is a two day event featuring 6 sessions, 15 presenters, a world class gallery show, a fully sponsored after party (18+) and a epic line up of artists, designers, creatives, next generation leaders and three amazing company founders.
Each presentation is projected in HD onto one of Melbourne’s biggest screens with full Dolby 7.1 Audio.
Having never been to anything like this before, I approached the event with great trepidation. What is it going to be like? I don’t know anyone… What do I do? Where do I sit? But, in a typical fashon that I have come to expect from the art community in Australia, I was welcomed with open arms (literally!) when I hit the awesome Mr. Penfold show held at the Just Another Project Space in Prahan.
