    Episode 13 - Dorothy Di Stefano - The rise and rise of Immersive Art

    This week we are exploring the rise of immersive art, and I could think of no better person to speak with on this subject than Dorothy Di Stefano who joined me in the fabulous setting of the Pullman Hyde Park Hotel in Sydney for a conversation about where this space is heading.

    Dorothy is one of Australia’s leading voices in the global phenomenon of immersive and interactive art

    As the founder of Molten Immersive Art, she leads a collective of international experiential artists and researchers.

    Together they work at the cutting edge of new technology and art as creators, cultural strategists and site-specific, digital immersive experience designers.

    Dorothy has a seemingly never ending roll call of achievements but current and most recent projects include:

    Curator, Noor Riyadh Festival a new citywide annual festival of light and art in Saudi Arabia and a Founding Circle Member of the World Experience Organization

    She was recently names as a Top Voice on LinkedIn and she has nearly 50,000 followers that tune into the incredible content she shares from around the world on immersive art.

    If you enjoy our conversation, Dorothy also features on a live panel exploring the future of Immersive Art in Australia which is featured in another episode of See Things Differently

    Episode 10 - Mary McGillivray - Art History TikTok Superstar a.k.a. _theiconoclass

    Episode 10 - Mary McGillivray - Art History TikTok Superstar a.k.a. _theiconoclass

    Episode 10 of See Things Differently features an interview with Mary McGillivray a TikTok Superstar who also goes by _theiconoclass and is helping make the arts accessible to a new gwen

    TikTok might only be 5-years old, but the short form video-focused social networking service is a big deal these days with over 1 billion active users each month. That’s pretty significant in itself but in July 2021 it became the first App other than Facebook to reach 3 billion downloads. It’s also growing much faster; with users up 45% on a year ago compared to just 7% growth by Facebook in the same period  (Techcrunch).

    TikTok is often associated with a younger demographic with Gen Z making up the biggest group of users (16-24) although the app is used by more and more millennials (25-44) who make up the next largest user group.

    It’s best known for viral memes and lip-synched songs but the range of content these days is incredibly broad. There is an increasing amount of educational content, and this is where Mary McGillivray aka _theiconoclass fits in.

    She is what you might call an Art TikTok Superstar. An Australian currently based in the UK, Mary describes herself as a Video Essayist making visual culture analysis accessible for the next generation. It turns out she is pretty good at it. Despite only starting on TikTok at the start of the pandemic she has already amassed close to 400,000 followers, over 8 million Likes and her content was viewed over 3 million times in the last 60 days. In her videos she explores everything from individual works of art to different art movements. Her style is light-hearted, extremely witty and engaging but crucially she knows here stuff and has an academic background in the subject matter.

    Her success at engaging a new generation in art and art history has seen her courted by multiple cultural institutions from the big guys such as the NGV (Australia’s most visited cultural institution) to smaller players such as Coffs Harbour Regional Art Gallery. I’ve also had the pleasure of working with Mary and her partner in crime Julian O’Shea (also a popular TikToker and YouTuber) as she is part of the Alchemy initiative, a project REMIX has co-developed with State Library Victoria to develop a series of innovative new in-person and digital experiences at one of the most visited libraries in the world.

    Her work with cultural institutions has also brought them exposure beyond the engagement on TikTok with Mary being featured in everything from The Australian to the ABC.

    In this interview she demystifies TikTok, talks about how cultural institutions can engage new audiences through the platform by exploring the work of a range of different creators on the platform. She also delves into the entrepreneurial side of the being a content creator.

    Episode 9 - Michael Eavis, Founder of the Glastonbury Festival

    Episode 9 - Michael Eavis, Founder of the Glastonbury Festival

    Episode 9 of See Things Differently features an interview with Michael Eavis of Glastonbury the creator of the Glastonbury Festival

    So it’s a big one for this episode. An interview with none other than the legendary Michael Eavis of Glastonbury with Guardian Music Editor Ben Beaumont-Thomas recorded at a REMIX London event a couple of years ago.

    The good news first. As mentioned, it is an interview with the legend that is Michael Eavis. The bad news is there were some serious technical gremlins on the day that meant we had to rely on our backup audio recording which was less than stellar. We decided to throw this one in as a bit of a bonus pod therefore and if you are prepared to bear with the dodgy sound I think you will get a great deal of pleasure from this.

    Michael Eavis is an English dairy farmer by trade but is of course best known as the creator of Glastonbury Festival, which takes place on his farm in Pilton, Somerset.

    One of the most iconic music festivals on the planet it is attended by around 200,000 people and has featured some of the biggest names in music from Davie Bowie to Beyonce.

    It all began in the late sixties; after a casual visit to the Bath Blues festival with his girlfriend Jean, Michael decided to have a go himself in 1970. The Festival did not make a profit for several years, but when it did, Michael began to look for good causes to support both locally and internationally. Nowadays, the Festival aims to raise two million pounds each Festival year in aid of Greenpeace, Oxfam and WaterAid, as well as hundreds of local causes.

    Episode 8 - Sir Tim Smit, Co-Founder of the Eden Project

    Episode 8 - Sir Tim Smit, Co-Founder of the Eden Project

    Episode 8 of See Things Differently features an interview with Sir Tim Smit, Co-Founder of the Eden Project

    In this episode we will hear the incredible story of the creation of the Eden Project by the Co-Founder Sir Tim Smit.

    I remember walking into what was once a disused clay pit to lay eyes on the Eden Project for the first time and it is truly an unforgettable sight. It is a globally iconic piece of architecture that has even featured in a James Bond movie. Many things have been called the Eighth Wonder of the World and Eden stakes a claim for me.

    After my visit I subsequently read Tim’s book, The Eden Project from cover to cover which tells the story of its creation. If you don’t have time for that however, he condenses this story for us in a 40 minute talk he gave at REMIX London a few years back.

    We decided to pull it from the archives at this time as part of a series of talks and interviews we are sharing that connect to the incredibly important global conversation that is happening at the United Nations Climate Change conference in Glasgow. The mission of Eden is to help protect the environment and they want to do this by creating a movement that builds relationships between people and the natural world to demonstrate the power of working together for the benefit of all living things.

    Prior to his Eden adventure Tim spent ten years in the music industry as a composer and producer in both rock music and opera before moving to Cornwall where he ‘discovered’ and then restored the Lost Gardens of Heligan which is a whole other story in itself.

    The Eden Project began as a dream in 1995 and finally opened its doors to the public in 2000. More than 19 million people have visited and it has Eden has contributed over £1.9 billion into the Cornish economy.
