Dan Vukovljak’s Something or Nothing is an experience in interactive art. After spending six months as a studio resident at the Canberra Contemporary Art Space, he has made the shift from painting to new media.
In Something or Nothing the art no longer stays on the walls, waiting patiently for you to come and stare it down. Bet you never thought art could be this addictive, but just wait till you pick up a singing pencil. You may need someone to come and tear you away from it. As you take the pencils in your hot little hands and start to draw you are no longer the same person, suddenly you are a conductor, a musician and an artist. You might be used to talking about drawings, but this drawing talks back. Listen to what it’s saying, it might be something, or nothing, but this is definitely one artwork that is not going to stay quiet.
