EPHEMERAL


Ephemeral is a publication, which documents the urban visual culture of the Melbourne CBD at a specific moment in time. Comprised of photographs taken over a four-day period between the 24/03/2019 and 27/03/2019, this book looks at Melbourne through the framework of images and objects displayed in public spaces. Some artefacts were displayed with an established agenda in mind. Others were displayed for no apparent logical reason. Some placed without permission. Others placed with approval. Some were large in scale, whilst others were small. Some were bold, others so subtle people may have walked past them a dozen times without ever noticing. However, the one trait that all these items have in common is that their lifespan in public space is likely to be very short and this publication may be the only evidence of their fleeting existence.
