We take tremendous pride in our students creative work. Below is a selection of various work from several disciplines:
This exciting project is a collaboration between the City of Bunbury and the Edith Cowan University (ECU) South West Arts program.
Working under the mentorship of sculptor Alex Mickle, Visual Arts Honours students Tom Ansell, Rebecca Corps and Dan Kus, devised and created this steel sculpture entry statement at Koombana Drive in Bunbury.
The sculpture represents the rescue of sailors from the wreck of the Carbet Castle which sank in 1897 in Koombana Bay. The ship’s dog, Old Bob, swam to shore with a rope to enable rescue of the crew with a breeches buoy. Some argued he was not the hero of the day, but we should give ‘honour where honour is due’. Old Bob was shot by customs the next day and he remains a martyr in local legend.
This work, which spans over 60 metres, was produced in the studio at ECU's South West (Bunbury) Campus over 5 months in 2015.
Sarah’s thesis is a collection of creative work entitled
“I found that the more I understood creative vision, the more developmental my work became. These works have brought me further in my creative development, leaving me in a better knowledgeable and practical position to approach my next paintings." (Sarah Mills, 2014)
The short story ‘Against the Grain’ was published in the inaugural issue of Gargouille, a printed, bi-annual literary journal of short stories, poetry, scripts, aesthetic essays, lost and found words. It was founded in 2014 by Melbourne-based poets Sarah Wreford and Adriane Howell. Before finding publication the story was Commended in the Down South Writers Short Story Competition 2012, and Highly Commended in the Margaret River Short Story Competition South West Writer’s Prize 2013, which shows that persistence pays off!
This short story collection, The trouble with flying, includes work by Arts student Rachelle Rechichi, whose short story won the South West Writers Prize in the 2014 Margaret River Short Story competition. Stories by Arts students Leslie Thiele and Leanne Browning were highly commended in the competition and their stories also feature in this collection.
