The making of ‘Sydney – We Need to Talk!’
I talk to Sydney artist Wendy Murray, who won the Fisher Library Printer in Residence scholarship. During her 8 week residency Wendy used letterpress and digital printing processes to produce Sydney – we need to talk!, a collection of short, accessible interventions about the politics of urbanisation in Sydney and beyond.
The book contains 8 essays and I talk to some of my co-authors about the book writing process. Wendy responded to each of our essays by drawing an image she felt expressed the ideas and emotions within the words. The book was launched in conjunction with the Festival of Urbanism.
This City Road Special Project was recorded in the Fisher Library at the University of Sydney on 9th September 2018. It was edited on 10th September 2018 using only the onsite Fisher Library field recordings. This piece will not appear in the City Road Podcast feeds.
