Michaela Gleave is a Sydney based artist. Working with materials such as cloud, light, rain and ice within constructed, architectural spaces, Gleave’s often-illusory installations hover at the junction between art and science, operating between the spaces of personal experience and global understanding. Returning repeatedly to the atmosphere and global airspace as the site for her work, Gleave’s installations and interventions question the relationship we have with our surroundings, allowing us to experience the processes by which we comprehend reality and rethink our presence within it.

Meshing on the Grid
In this work, maps of city streets, diagrams of electricity grids, patterns of pedestrian movement are used to formulate a series of hypothetical power-based patterns.
Penelope Cain is obsessed by cities in general and the operational micro-climate of the city in particular; the influence of the city on the people that inhabit its external and internal spaces. Influenced by medieval church floors, subterranean city service infrastructure and Sydney CBD in rush hour, Meshing on the Grid hypothesises incomplete links between assorted transient flows of energy through the city.
Penelope Cain is a Sydney-based multi-disciplinary artist working primarily with video, drawing and installation. She undertook an Australian Council for the Arts residency in Rome in 2008 and has recently exhibited at Australian Centre for Photography and as a selected finalist in the Albury Art Prize.
