Analogue/Digital have just announced three international presenters for The Design Conference in Brisbane, May 2016
The Design Conference has successfully evolved to become one of the world’s favourite two-day design forums. To supersede the expectations of this years event, organiser and founder Matthew Haynes has successfully secured a range of internationally acclaimed entrepreneurs, designers and artists to make their Australian debut at next years conference in Brisbane, May 2016. Haynes explains:
“Over the past five years we have featured more that 90 of Australia’s best known creatives including super-stars like Chris Doyle, Kevin Finn and Dare Jennings. To keep our audience excited and engaged, we must debut internationally acclaimed thought leaders at our event here in Brisbane.”
The super talented VNA contributing photographer Nicole Reed and Plutonic Lab have collaborated to produce Field Notes (Hong Kong), a limited edition 80 page book of Nicole’s photography, accompanied by a 10″ vinyl record of music by Plutonic Lab.
“Hong Kong has always been a place that has held a massive interest for us, and when we visited, we naturally documented our travels as much as we could. We fell in love with Hong Kong and what we captured exceeded our expectations which lead us to the idea of Field Notes.”
“I have always wanted to produce a book of my photography and people have always asked me when I’ll be working one. The images I took in Hong Kong have really inspired me to pursue this. We brainstormed the idea of using field recordings and thought the music created from them made an incredible backdrop for the images.”
“We wanted to combine our work in a unique and complimentary way, and as a creator of records and a fan of collecting them, the idea of inserting a vinyl record into the back seemed a perfect way of creating something tangible, analog and beautiful.”
