TWIG 1 – Our very first TWIG

May 2012 at Moulamein with Peter Redfearn

Dunkeld artist Trevor Flinn lived and worked at Farnley for five days, working with Swan Hill artist John Britten and property owner Peter Redfearn.

Trevor created installations from objects found around the farm and he recorded video on his iPhone. John created sound recordings from around the farm.

The result was a TWIG event at the historic Nyang Woolshed, where the work was installed, local musicians (including Peter) played and neighbours enjoyed soup, scones, tea and coffee around a TWIG fire.

It was the first of five TWIGs held from May to August 2012 in the region.

Partners – Swan Hill Rural City Council, Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery, Regional Arts Victoria, Your Community Cares, Wakool Shire Council and The Australia Council.

“This has been an extraordinarily successful project. Something that has reached far beyond what we could have imagined. But in a quiet way, a sincere and respectful way.” – Ian Tully, The ACRE Project


Trevor’s video was projected onto a piece of hay wrap suspended from the highest beam of the Nyang Woolshed. Accompanying the visuals was John’s arresting soundscape, which featured sounds captured during his visit to the site. All video was shot using an iphone4.
