Behind the Scenes Video: The Making of Touch by Ross Gardam

Behind the flawless-finish of Ross Gardam's copper pendants is a raw handmade process.

Art that changes your experience of place

Site-specific art – as its name suggests – is intrinsically intertwined with place. Informed by a pre-existing landscape or built into one, art and place alter each other. We delve into the practice and talk to the artists who create it.

Site-Specific Art: Emma Coulter

Emma Coulter's site-specific work has a direct link with her background in painting and interior architecture. Blending the two lets her explore the ideas that overlap between them, de-constructing and re-constructing a space to using a refined palette to create something new.

Klara is a Melbourne-based street and studio artist, combining painting, illustration, paste-ups, stencil, installation and more. For Klara, the more she delves into her practise, the more site-specific it becomes. We find out why.

We hear from Stefanie Flaubert as to how these various spaces differ and what makes them so intriguing.
