The Wake #2 is a project that commemorates static. It is a collaboration with 86 year old Joy Hruby who currently broadcasts her show ‘Joys World’ from her make shift TV studio in her garage in Botany, Sydney.
In 2011 Lara created The Wake at the Victorian Markets, a social affair acknowledging the sites dark history through a calculated collection of napkins and vegetables. The Wake #2 will be a broadcast evoking grief and celebration; a social event to commemorate the final days of analog static through installation and live performance.
Thom’s collaboration with community television personality Joy Hruby, is a match that illustrates an affinity for a DIY approach to media and art making, sharing a satisfaction from the creative collaborative process itself, as well as creating work that may explore non commercial means of communication via TV.
