HRD / CF Newsletter
Issue 1-4 set

The HRD / CF Newsletter is a periodical publication produced within the exhibition ‘Hi$h Risk Dressing / Critical Fashion’ at RMIT Design Hub. The exhibition centres on the local fashion organisation active in Melbourne between the years 1983-1993, the Fashion Design Council. The FDC (as they are often shortened to), founded by Robert Buckingham, Kate Durham and Robert Pearce, were a self―organised group set up to foster independent designers and artists dealing with fashion. Influenced by the post―punk scene of Northern fashion capitals, the FDC put on shows in clubs and venues, as well as organising exhibitions, and eventually setting up a shop serving as a platform for alternative fashion in Melbourne. Throughout their active period, the FDC were prolific self―publishers. Print collateral was central to their success as an organisation. Postcards, invites, catalogues, business cards and other ephemera were shared with members and the broader public, promoting their officialdom. Particularly significant was the FDC newsletter, designed by co-founder Robert Pearce, disseminating a manifesto as well as news and events with its members. The newsletters were ad hoc; informal in language and design but expressed the energy and creative spirit of both the FDC community and available technology.

Using the model of the FDC newsletter, the HRD / CF Newsletter is a take―away publication released each week of the exhibition program. Each of the issues is framed around an emerging aspect of the FDC captured in the exhibition ― the archive, the bar, the shop and the office ― with texts, interviews and contributions from local and international practitioners. The ‘HRD / CF Newsletter also includes facsimiles of print ephemera from the FDC archive, which was donated to the RMIT Design Archives in 1998 by co-founder Robert Buckingham. This new newsletter functions as a platform for disseminating ideas about the FDC then, and critical fashion now, allowing for new dialogues to emerge from the legacy of FDC.

Christopher L G Hill
Tink Thank


Since 2011, Christopher L G Hill has sustained an open-ended project of twitter poetry. Through fluid yet disciplined haiku-like tweets, a multistanza poem has emerged, described on twitter.com/CLGHill as “a florid poem flailing in reflexivity”. In his artist book tink thank, Christopher L G Hill has translated poetic material crafted according to internet protocols into a form that operates in a non-virtual, printed environment. The result is not an analogue duplication; through addition, subtraction and reformatting of the original poetic content, a new work has been produced that explores the lived nature of expression, impression and introspection.

Text within and outside of an internet context has become an integral part of Christopher L G Hill’s expansive practice over the past decade, see for example:

3-ply is co-publishing tink thank with Poly:be Press, a new imprint focusing on projects that traverse the digital and analogue, including translations, hybrid works, and material archiving of digital ephemera.
