Rainbow's End, a "museum from our possible futures" exhibition that I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets is showing until October 6th, which means you have just a couple of weeks left to come and see ‘Jellyfish’ a "garment for light" by Grace Wood and Sean Tran of SHHORN — "When speculations first began about global warming, many years ago, the focus was on those species that would die out. As predicted; the most vulnerable species died first. Amongst many others - the Polar bears, the Adelie penguins and the Green Sea turtles. When the catastrophes happened, it wasn’t just the human population that was decimated. 99.99% of the earth’s species died. We are left with a handful of animals – wild boar, feral cats, rat snakes, mosquitoes, the Brown Argus butterfly, and jellyfish. As temperatures increased the jellyfish thrived. We watched the jellyfish in the wild; subtly luminescent and lingering in suspension. We conceived of ‘Jellyfish’ as a garment for a body of light to use in our everyday lives, serving as a reminder of the subsurface effects of global warming."

Rainbow's End, a "museum from our possible futures" exhibition that I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets is showing until October 6th, which means you have just a few weeks left to come and see this 'Death Mask' by Fred Fowler — "This bronze mask was made in an attempt to stop time. To immortalise a figure long gone known as THE EQUATION. Also known as RAMMELLZEE; he warned us of the oppressive nature of the Roman alphabet. He urged us to fight a symbolic war with “slang and tonics” to take control of the revolution rather than accept the evolution of our future shaped by those with power; drawn from their knowledge and spelt out neatly in straight lines to fit their system. Since “the events” we have been equalised. The slates were cleared. But power structures are again beginning to form. A new evolution is inevitable. We look to RAMM:ELL:ZEE to guide us on a path of equality through deconstruction. To use our letters and language as weapons for freedom."

Rainbow's End, a "museum from our possible future" exhibition that I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets is showing until October 6th, which means you have just a few weeks left to come and see 'Safety Goggles with Etui (for the Lofty Thoughts Processor)' by Helle Jorgensen — "The ‘Safety Goggles with Etui’ come from a small tribe living on the border of remnant rainforest and open grassland in subtropical Australia. They are used to protect the operators of the ‘Lofty Thoughts Processor’; invented by the tribe’s healers as a remedy for helping tribe members to deal with the big, philosophical thoughts of our new time."

Rainbow's End, the exhibition I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets is showing until October 6th, which means you have just a few weeks left to come and see Akuna Kuranya' by Tracey Deep — "My tribe is from Lake Eyre located in the Simpson Desert, named Kuddimukra. My woven offering ‘Akuna Kuranya’ (flowing water, rainbow) was made from found rescued recycled silk fibres and rusted metal from nearby ruins. It was made as an offering to the rain spirit. When hung off a tree and left blowing in the wind it dances to encourage the rain spirit to flood our wells. Our connection to mother earth is our source of survival for our future."

Rainbow's End, the exhibition I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets is showing until October 6th, which means you have just a few weeks left to come and see this 'Ceremonial Alter' by Kevina-Jo Smith — "This small ceremonial altar is used for our plastic worship rituals. It is made from plastic objects washed up on our tribe’s beaches. We realised long ago that plastic should be treated as a precious commodity not as a material for single or limited use objects. We make many objects from the plastic we find. We wear them proudly and use them wisely."

Rainbow's End, the exhibition I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets is showing until October 6th, which means you have just a few weeks left to come and see 'Idol' by Kate Rhode — "Before the eruptions many resources had already been depleted. Plastics remained however - pervasive and abundant. In the mountainous, volcanic region much of this plastic collected and settled. During the eruptions the earth’s plastic was melted down and transformed into new and fantastical geological forms. We found these forms and now we worship them as symbols of the power of nature. This idol is made from forms found on different parts of the mountain and a small deer skull that was fossilised in the plastic eruption."

Do I believe that all Australians should enjoy the same rights? Do I believe that all of my friends, colleagues, clients, neighbours, and heroes should be able to marry the people that they love? Do I believe that my father-in-law, my son's grandfather, should be free to marry his partner of over a decade? Do I believe that this postal survey is a destructive waste of time, money, and a sad indictment of our current political 'leadership'? Do I believe that despite this we should send the strongest possible message of support to our LGBTQI brothers and sisters anyway? The answer to all these questions is YES, and that is how I will be voting. I urge you to do the same. #voteyes

Rainbow's End, the exhibition I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets has been extended until October 6th, which means you have just under a month to come and see 'PPW (Post Petroleum Works)' by Dale Hardiman & James Walsh — "Because of our once vastly excessive use of petroleum and the effect it had on the environment; plastics have been banned. It is illegal to own anything that has been made from petroleum… We are only allowed to produce objects from natural and renewable materials. And their lifespans can’t exceed our own. Those that do still own plastic objects disguise them to avoid penalties."

Rainbow's End, the exhibition I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets has been extended until October 6th, which means you have just under a month to come and see 'Spin' by Valerie Restarick — "Spin was what we were fed as news for a long time just before the disasters. It made us lose sight of the real news, what we now call the forgotten news. The forgotten news – evidence of our irreversible impact on the climate, news of the civil wars in far off places, the struggles of those who seemingly had no impact on our own daily lives. If there is one thing to be said for the disasters it’s that they were an equalizer. Now, we’re all in the same boat. It has given us empathy. We finally understand each other as beings. Not as statistics, not as numbers crossing the ever-rising seas in search of safety."

Rainbow's End, the exhibition I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets has been extended until October 6th, which means you have just under a month to come and see this timeless ceremonial bowl, made from clay and beeswax by Liane Rossler — "By 2060, the population has hit 10 billion, the sea levels have risen and space has become a valuable commodity. People had become resourceful and adaptable. Civilization had hit ‘peak stuff’ earlier in the century, and people were now appreciating the really valuable things in life that supported survival. This bowl is designed to be as adaptable and multi functional as possible, with a form of primitive simplicity and timelessness. It is transportable, hard wearing, and can be used to pay tribute to what is placed inside it, such as food or water or plants. It is designed be used in a pushme-pullyou twice as useful way."

Rainbow's End, the exhibition I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets has been extended until October 6th, which means you have just under a month to come and see these three artefacts of tomorrow's oceans — 'Sea Urchin Memory’, ‘Pollen Memory’, and ‘Coral Spore Memory’ by Michael Gray.

Rainbow's End, the exhibition I've curated for the @hotel_hotel cabinets has been extended until October 6th, which means you have another month to come and see this glorious beast: 'Radiant being from the edge of Tempe Tip' by Dave Teer — "This oddly disfigured object was found on the edge of the old Tempe tip site and the recently modified WestConnex tunnel that is now being excavated for a new underground shelter. Was this object an idol from the time before or after the event? It is hard to say. This find seems to be an amalgam of objects and ideas, maybe it has a religious connection, maybe it's a portrait, or the manifestation of someone's drea. Maybe it's just a child's act of play. Whatever it is, or whatever it stood for, its original context remains a mystery and for the minute it sits here in the crib room with us, as the scholars find it of no value. In saying that it seems - in these ever changing days - the scholars themselves are not widely valued. It survives here with us because it is interesting in form and stimulates curiosity in the curious and it is made up of a number of materials that are of absolutely no value what so ever."
