Brief History of Zenwatt
started a few years ago when a group of artists got together to promote their work.
We rented an exhibition space at
the "Bush factory" in Nimbin and held "zenwatt" exhibitions after the movies. These were more of an 'event' than
static exhibitions, with live performances and bacchanalian feasts. Our group consisted of
painters, ceramicists, sculptors, musicians, performance artists and one poet ... that was
The 'zenwatt events' were very
successful as far as events go, I mean everyone had a rollicking good time and the artwork
was amazing... but... we didn't sell enough of our 'products' to pay the rent, so we gave
up our lease and decided to hold random events "whenever we got the urge".
In 1999, the need to publish my work led
me to the 'computer' which led me to the internet... and the idea to build a Zenwatt cyber
publishing house and exhibition space.
...and here we are in zenwatt2000.
goodwill and happiness to you all,
Zenwatt, May 2000
