Open Spatial Workshop
Converging in Time

Open Spatial Workshop: Converging in Time was published on the occasion of the first major museum exhibition by Open Spatial Workshop (comprising artists Terri Bird, Bianca Hester and Scott Mitchell). The exhibition is part of MUMA’s much anticipated annual survey exhibition series that presents the practices of Australia’s most exciting and innovative mid-career artists. Converging in Time continues OSW’s sculptural investigation into the forces of material formation. Drawing on earth sciences research and studies of the Anthropocene, this major book explores the relationship between the mineral make-up of a site and the societies they produce and sustain.

Designed by Paul Mylecharane and Ziga Testen
Artists: Open Spatial Workshop (comprising of Terri Bird, Bianca Hester and Scott Mitchell)

Adam Cruickshank / Open Spatial Workshop

A publication instigated in response to perceived inadequacies in traditional artist monography conventions. A response to the practice of Melbourne based artist collective Open Spatial Workshop (Terri Bird, Bianca Hester, Scott Mitchell), this publication began as a manipulation of the monograph form.

Adam Cruickshank
Cruickshank is an artist and designer based in Melbourne. His work examines the foundational frameworks that structure understandings of artworks. Currently this revolves around publishing and design’s relationship to exhibition making and its conventions of explication and archiving. He teaches at Monash University, has a Masters of Fine Art at Monash and is a current PhD candidate at RMIT University.
