Melbourne’s art island that’s hiding in plain sight

Still, the new little island grew again, mainly due to it being a dumping ground for silt dredged from the river bed as flood mitigation efforts continued.By the 1950s Como Island was substantial enough that the Boy Scouts moved in and built a hall. “We need more people,” he said. They renamed the island after Lieutenant General Sir Edmund Herring (1892-1982), a Supreme Court chief justice and president of the national Scouts association.The Scouts moved out in 1970 and there was talk of the island becoming a school, but instead it lay disused and covered with invasive weeds.

CASV president Robert Lee, who is also on the festival committee, said the island was a “magical place”.He said art lovers had told him that visiting the island was “unlike going to a gallery in Brunswick Street where they’re fighting traffic and they can walk into a gallery feeling stressed out”.

Two-thirds of the public art on Herring Island is there from the 1997 Melbourne Festival. “By the time they’ve come on the punt, which is fun in itself … and walked through the bush to the gallery they’re already in a relaxed atmosphere.”Mr Fitzpatrick said on a busy day he would ferry 300 to 400 people to the island for the festival. Visiting UK artist and environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy built two site-specific works, the festival giving him the island’s only valley for one of them, and Australian artists dotted the rest of the island with installations and sculptures.The former Scouts building was transformed into a gallery, which for the past 12 years has been the venue for the Herring Island Summer Arts Festival.The festival, which runs until April 15, raises funds to maintain the island’s public art. This year the festival includes four exhibitions, the latest of which is Contemporary Arts Society of Victoria (CASV) show Contemporary By Nature, which opened on the weekend.Artists lined the jetty at Como Landing with their artworks on Friday, waiting for the punt to carry them across the water to the gallery.

Punt skipper Simon Fitzpatrick described the island as “Melbourne’s best-kept secret”, saying even people who pass it every day presume it’s just the other side of the river.”Some people have stated they’ve lived in Melbourne 50 years and never knew it existed.”Built from siltHerring Island was originally known as Como Island when it was formed in 1928.It was made when workers cut a channel through a Richmond bluestone quarry in a bid to stop the Yarra flooding houses and industries downstream.Six years later floods put much of the inner east under water and washed most of the island away. In the 1980s the Friends of Herring Island (FOHI) started removing the weeds and planting trees and shrubs native to the area, gradually transforming it into the bushy haven it is today.”We have a work day on the first Sunday of every month, and during the winter months we’re generally the only people there,” FOHI’s Stanley Barker said.Sculpture park

Robert Lee says the sculpture trail circles the island, ending at the Herring Island Gallery. “Not a lot of people know exactly where we are — just 3.5 kilometres from the CBD.” Usually when people talk about a hidden arts space in Melbourne it’s off the main street, down a graffiti-covered laneway and through a doorway behind some rubbish bins.This one is also off a main road, one of the city’s busiest toll roads in fact, but rather than walking down a grotty lane, you get there by taking a boat on the Yarra River.Herring Island is an eight-acre bushland sculpture park, 3.5 kilometres from the CBD.Most visitors catch the Parks Victoria punt which runs on weekends and public holidays from January to April, but kayakers have been known to stop by to use the free barbecues.The artificial island is home to nine pieces of public art, and, barbecue shelters aside, its only permanent building is an art gallery.

Turtle egg protection plan is outfoxing predators

Ranger Michael Maconachie gives turtle hatchlings a helping hand
Fox predation problem widespreadFox predation is a problem for turtles across the Murray Darling Basin.”The turtles live for 60 years so you can look at your population and think, ‘They’re doing really well, we have lots of turtles’,” Ms Gould said. “Protecting about 12 nests, if in every nest we could save 18 to 20 turtles, that’s quite a lot of baby turtles being released into the wetlands potentially,” Ms Gould said. “Once in the water, there’s a more than 50 per cent survival rate,” Lori Gould, from Woodlands and Wetlands Trust Jerrabomberra Wetlands, said. “So that had us a little bit worried and that’s why we’re teaming up with experts to try and find the solution.”Ms Gould said controlling the foxes at Jerrabomberra Wetlands was not really an option.”Simply because there are so many in the surrounding area, every time you remove one several foxes come back in, they all fight and the dominant male usually succeeds and we go back to a stable population,” she said. “Until we solve the regional fox problem, we’ve had to call on some labour-intensive but hopefully successful methods to try and save the turtles in the meantime.”Rangers expect more turtles to emerge over the next few months. Labour-intensive efforts to protect eastern long-necked turtle eggs from foxes in Canberra appear to be paying off. The first hatchlings — 18 in total — have emerged from their protected nests and been released into the water at Jerrabomberra Wetlands. Photo:
Turtle hatchlings have more than a 50 per cent chance of survival once they reach the water. So last spring, rangers and volunteers spent 15 rainy nights following female turtles around, waiting for them to lay eggs and then securely covering their nests with a metal grid.”When they finished laying, which took several hours on occasion, we would put the grid on and pin it down,” Ms Gould told ABC Radio Canberra.

For years foxes have been digging up nearly all the turtle nests at the wetlands and eating the eggs.Past efforts to protect the eggs with fences, pallets and cameras failed. “But when we went out and actually trapped them, we found we were getting nearly all adults at the wetlands and not a lot of juveniles which meant not a lot of recruitment to that population.

How one man used science to stop his pool feeling like a warm bath

Modern homes trapping heat 'like a plastic bag'
“It’s basically a low-energy system for cooling medium to large bodies of water like swimming pools and aquaculture facilities,” he said.”It’s suitable for use in the tropics and any other areas that get really hot.”Remarkably, the device doesn’t rely on anything other than the water already in the pool. Photo:
The web-enabled system pumps water droplets at a precise size and angle. Michael Bruvel had recently built an above-ground pool in his backyard when he suffered an experience familiar to many pool owners in the warmer months.The Darwin local would jump in after going for a run or spending time outdoors in the humid build-up, only to find it was like getting into a warm bath.”That was really the catalyst for me starting to work on a low-cost way to work it out,” Mr Bruvel said.”Of course there are refrigeration systems and air conditioner-style processors to cool your water, but they’re very expensive and very energy intensive.” For most people, a better option might seem obvious: erect a shade sail to block out the sun.But Mr Bruvel didn’t want a shade sail; he enjoyed swimming beneath the stars at night without having to remove a heavy sail each time.Instead, over two arduous years he devised an elaborate cooling system using the fundamentals of heat transfer to slash his pool’s temperature. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
What makes a pool warm?To devise the technology, Mr Bruvel drew upon what he knew about the factors that make a pool warmer than desirable.By far the main culprit, he said, was heat from the sun and an environment’s ambient temperature, which will continue to heat a body of water until it and the ambient temperature match.”If you’re getting day after day where the temperature isn’t getting below 28 degrees, eventually your pool will get to 28C or whatever the long-term average is for that ambient temperature.” The size and shape of your pool is another factor.Because the water’s surface is where most of the sun’s heat transfers, and smaller bodies of water heat up quicker than large ones, a shallow pool with a large surface will heat up quickest.”It’s sort of that surface area that’s exposed either to the sun or the atmosphere that’s a determining factor,” Mr Bruvel said.”A big, deep pool will stay quite cool as well.”How do you cool it?Between 2:30am and 5:00am each day, panels of jets attached to the side of Mr Bruvel’s pool have been pumping water back over the pool’s surface.The size of the droplets the jets spray are like a Goldilocks formula; too small and they risk being carried away by wind, too large and the relationship between volume and surface area becomes skewed so heat transfer is less effective.”Basically they’re coming out of the jet at the temperature of the pool, and then as they pass through the air they take on the temperature of the surrounding air,” Mr Bruvel said.By turning the system on early in the morning when the ambient temperature is coolest, Mr Bruvel has reduced his pool temperature by as many as five or six degrees.”This pool used to be stuck out in the blaring sun and it used to get 32 degrees plus, and even with my early prototypes I was getting it down to 28.”

The inventor is fine tuning technology that will allow web-enabled algorithms to make decisions about when to activate the jets based on weather forecasts.The jets will switch on automatically when they have the greatest capacity to reduce the pool’s temperature to the desired range.”I’ve also developed a cost-calculation algorithm that can look at what the temperature target is and what the existing climatic conditions are,” Mr Bruvel, who works in air quality analysis, said.”Then you can input the price of water and the price of power, and it can develop a cost estimate for you to reach a given temperature target.”That’s just a little quirky thing I’m working on on the side.”Eventually, he said, this would allow users to learn whether it was cheaper to cool off by lowering their pool’s temperature, turning on their air conditioner, or even opening a can of beer.Mr Bruvel has a provisional patent for the product and is seeking feedback from the market.Prototypes he has lent to other people’s pools are showing signs of success.

Jewel – Foolish Games

You’re always brilliant in the morning,
Smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee. [Chorus]
You took your coat off,
Stood in the rain,
You’re always crazy like that. You stood in my doorway, with nothing to say
Besides some comment on the weather. You’re breaking my heart. You loved Mozart and you’d speak of your loved ones
As I clumsily strummed my guitar. Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you. And I watched from my window,
Always felt I was outside looking in on you. You’re always the mysterious one with
Dark eyes and careless hair,
You were fashionably sensitive
But too cool to care. You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
You’re always crazy like that. [Pre-Chorus 1]
Well in case you failed to notice,
In case you failed to see,
This is my heart bleeding before you,
This is me down on my knees, and…
[Chorus]
These foolish games are tearing me apart,
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart. You’d teach me of honest things
Things that were daring, things that were clean
Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean
So I hid my soiled hands behind my back
Somewhere along the line I must’ve gone off track with you
[Pre-Chorus 2]
Well, excuse me, guess I’ve mistaken you for somebody else,
Somebody who gave a damn,
Somebody more like myself.

Richard Marx – Now & Forever

Whenever I’m weary
From the battles that rage in my head
You make sense of madness
When my sanity hangs by a thread
I lose my way but still you seem to understand
Now and forever, I will be your man
Sometimes I just hold you
Too caught up in me to see
I’m holding a fortune
That heaven has given to me
I’ll try to show you each and every way I can
Now and forever, I will be your man
Now I can rest my worries and always be sure
That I won’t be alone anymore
If I’d only known you were there all the time
All this time
Until the day the ocean doesn’t touch the sand
Now and forever, I will be your man
Now and forever, I will be your man

LeAnn Rimes – How Do I Live

How do I, how do I, oh, how do I live? How do I, how do I, oh, how do I live? Without you there’d be no sun in my sky
There would be no love in my life
There’d be no world left for me
And I, baby, I don’t know what I would do
I’d be lost if I lost you, if you ever leave
Baby, you would take away everything real in my life
And tell me now
How do I live without you? Baby, you would take away everything, I need you with me
Baby, don’t you know that you’re everything good in my life? If I had to live without you
What kind of life would that be? I want to know
How do I breathe without you if you ever go
How do I ever, ever survive? I want to know
How do I breathe without you if you ever go? How do I live? How do I, how do I, oh, how do I live? How do I ever, ever survive? How do I live without you? How do I get through one night without you? Oh, I, I need you in my arms, need you to hold
You’re my world, my heart, my soul and if you ever leave
Baby you would take away everything good in my life
And tell me now
How do I live without you? Please, tell me, baby
How do I go on if you ever leave? I want to know
How do I breathe without you if you ever go? And tell me now
How do I live without you? How do I ever, ever survive? How do I live without you, baby?

I’m a Cold Piece of Work
They tryna find a cure for me but I’m pure disease
I’m infecting the industry first, ain’t nobody safe from me

If you want it Nina’s on it with the quickness
Shit is real not ficticious all the wishes for the bomb
You can get it from the Don P, I daze you like a whippit
Nigga I’m addictive
[Pre-hook: JL]
They treat my bidness like it’s soda
Or my music like a perc
They know my flow is the yola
That’s a cold piece of work
[Hook: JL]
That’s dope nigga
That’s dope nigga
That’s dope nigga
That’s dope nigga
That’s dope nigga
That’s dope!

Kylie Minogue – Dancing (On Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway) (Live)

[Verse 1]
No one wants to stay at home
Nobody wants to be alone
When you come knocking, I’ll be at your door
I don’t ever wanna stop
I’m gonna give it all I’ve got
And when they ask me, “who could ask for more?”
[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t stand still
I won’t slow down
[Chorus]
When I go out, I wanna go out dancing
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
When I go out, I wanna go out dancing
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
I wanna go out dancing
[Post-Chorus]
I wanna go out
I wanna go out, dancing
[Verse 2]
This is where I wanna be with you
Your arms wrapped around me
And fireworks reflecting in your eyes
This is how I wanna feel
The wild kiss, the music reeling
Getting down, riding all the highs

[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t stand still
I won’t slow down
[Chorus]
When I go out, I wanna go out dancing
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
When I go out, I wanna go out dancing
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
I wanna go out dancing
[Post-Chorus]
I wanna go out
I wanna go out, dancing
[Bridge]
Everybody’s got a story
Let it be your blaze of glory
Burning bright, never fade away
And when the final curtain falls, we could say we did it all
The never ending of a perfect day
[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t stand still
(Can’t stand still)
I won’t slow down
(Won’t slow down)

[Chorus]
When I go out, I wanna go out dancing
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
When I go out, I wanna go out dancing
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
I wanna go out dancing
[Post-Chorus]
I wanna go out
I wanna go out
(I wanna go out dancing)
I wanna go out
I wanna go out
(I wanna go out dancing)

Mistah F.A.B. – Stand Outside

Always tellin’ me that I was good for nothin’
I was never good or nothin’
[Chorus: Kevin Gates]
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Grind or die, I’ll put that on the bible
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Brains on the dashboard, probly no survivors
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Prayin’ for protection from the one that’s right onside ya
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Hood niggas (all I know)
Good pretenders
All I know how to be’s a ridah
[Verse 1: The Jacka]
90 knocks in and out the spot for cream
90 shots hangin’ off the big machine
See my sister cryin’ they took her love away
All my niggas how we sellin’ drugs for pay
I just [?] they wanna murder me
So I gotta keep a cannon every day
Whole family [?] we gotta find a way
Stomach full of lean because we lost our way
Make a [?] never [?]
[?]
I lose every girl ’cause I sleep with my rifle
Now I tell the world this
[Chorus: Kevin Gates]
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Grind or die, I’ll put that on the bible
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Brains on the dashboard, probly no survivors
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Prayin’ for protection from the one that’s right onside ya
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Hood niggas (all I know)
Good pretenders
All I know how to be’s a ridah
[Verse 2: Mistah F.A.B.]
Damn, I can’t believe they killed my nigga Jack
Had a dream the other night that I brought my brodie back
We was gettin’ [?], smokin’ out a Back, sippin’ Act
‘Cause that’s how we use to do it, me and J and the Mac
Shit fuck with my mind and realize that he gone
Got me relapsin’ back to back, blowin’ out of the zone
I put that on my soul, never erase your number from my phone
Thug tears for thug angels, callin’ heaven their home
A lot of suckas gettin’ credit, but they fake and they fraudulent
‘Cause they ain’t shit without possessions, puttin’ on shows for their audience
My brotha Jack taught me a lesson, that we don’t care how hard he is
And that them niggas bleed too, regardless of who he thought he is
See, I was raised on the curbside
By pitchin’ flippers, lettin’ birds fly
And whoever kill the Jack, I sear to God I hope that nerd die
See a vision with my third eye, got my mind on murder
Mama didn’t raise a bitch, bein’ a coward was a nada
[Chorus: Kevin Gates]
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Grind or die, I’ll put that on the bible
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Brains on the dashboard, probly no survivors
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Prayin’ for protection from the one that’s right onside ya
All I know how to be’s a ridah
Hood niggas (all I know)
Good pretenders
All I know how to be’s a ridah [Intro: Kevin Gates]
Nigga told me it was cheaper to be myself, ya heard? Then that same nigga told me it wasn’t always cool to be me
What the fuck?
