Memory Flows, a project of the Centre for Media Arts and Innovation, UTS, culminated in an exhibition entitled 'Memory Flows: rivers, creeks and the great artesian basin' which examined the concepts of 'water, flows and memory'. Curated by Sophia Kouyoumdjian, Norie Neumark and Deb Turnbull, it featured fifteen media artworks by twenty CMAI members and affiliated artists: Ian Andrews, Chris Bowman, Chris Caines, Damian Castaldi, Sherre DeLys, Clement Girault, Jacqueline Gothe, Ian Gwilt, Nigel Helyer, Megan Heyward, Neil Jenkins, Solange Kershaw, Roger Mills, Maria Miranda, Norie Neumark, Shannon O'Neill, Greg Shapley, Victor Steffensen, Jen Teo and Jes Tyrrell. The exhibition, open for 15 days over two months with a public forum on June 20, included video and audio installations, interactive media works, mobile devices, projections on surfaces and through water, and an array of river related artworks and artefacts. Audience numbers totalled 2,700 visitors. 'Collecting Places' is the outcome of a collaboration between Jacqueline Gothe and Shere Delys from ABC Radio and Executive Producer of POOL, The installation is a chalk drawing on a brick wall with a sound scape. The image resulted from Gothe drawing in the studio as DeLys meditated at the Coorong in South Australia, the place where the Murray River meets the ocean. The outcome of the collaborative process contributes to Gothe's participatory practice, Drawing Country, an ongoing research project that advocates an examination of the ways to enhance connectedness and connection to place through visual communication. Memory Flows 2009-2010, a distributed media art project of the CMAI, was funded by the Inter-Arts Board of the Australia Council for the Arts.
