In its final days, hear artist Kate Mitchell discuss the work behind All Auras Touch with Carriageworks’ Head Curator of Visual Arts Beatrice Gralton.
About All Auras Touch:
All Auras Touch is a snapshot of contemporary Australia revealed through the process of photographing human energy fields, otherwise known as auras. Taking the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations as the starting point, artist Kate Mitchell will photograph the aura of one person for each of the 1,023 recognised occupations.
Using electromagnetic field imaging equipment, participants of All Auras Touch will have their aura portrait taken by the artist. Each aura portrait will then form part of an expansive installation presented by Carriageworks. All Auras Touch reminds us that we are all energetic beings made up of the same matter.
