Taking shape despite the rain. Kyle Hughes-Odgers on Day 3 of his 35-metre mural at Merredin's CBH Group grain silos as part of our #publicsilotrail.
In mischer'traxler's Curiosity Cloud, exhibiting now at The Goods Shed, hand-made model butterflies begin fluttering and tinkling within suspended blown-glass bulbs which light up in response to a viewer's presence. In LeveL, an epic carbon fibre mobile, 126 illuminated Japanese paper balloons flicker and dim with every tilt and sway of the structure. Explore it here or see these stunning works at The Goods Shed. Film by Peacock Visuals

Have been attending form events for many many years. Keep up the wonderful art.

After being a massive fan of Form and their projects and progress in this state, I have recently lost all faith and trust in their agenda. Public2016 has unfortunately used wall art installations (mu...rals with a background in street art where art is normally used to transform undesirable locations to great effect) to indefinitely mark Curtin buildings of recognised architectural/cultural significance (as per local heritage listing). Artists have been engaged to treat important architectural facades as blank canvases for vibrant works, where fashionable imagery has been valued as of greater importance than these ambitiously designed, very well constructed and previously intact, important collection of 'Brutalist' buildings. As a Curtin ilumni and Perth creative, I'm appalled at what I percieve this program says about our Perth creative capital, which is apparently not all equally respected or valued. I hope Form can engage in this current conversation to ensure these sentiments don't occur regarding future programs. See More

What an inspired way to transform blank, boring concrete walls into something stunning and to encourage conversations with local and international artists. I work at Curtin, and this project has trans...formed the campus. I took my kids in today, and they loved it, asking questions of the artists and really engaging with the work. My ten year old spent some time sketching one of the works, and my five year old demanded to get the paints out as soon as we got home. See More

Love the artwork. It has transformed dull concrete into interesting, vibrant environments which act as inspiration to all people that view them. Will bring the family to campus.

For those that like... brutalist architecture, there are still plenty of dull, oppressive, rough, grey concrete walls on campus. Notably 201 is untouched by the paint brush.

I spoke with Chris Nixon who designed his piece to work in complement with the the rough texture and linearity of the off form ceiling. Could be seen as an interpretation and enhancement of that form of architecture.

Very disappointing and distressing to see Form's PUBLIC 2016 program unfold at Curtin University.
Wonderful buildings ruined in a matter of days by such shallow means without any acknowledgement or re...spect for Vin Davies or the people who crafted these buildings admired by many.
The lack of sensitivity shown by an organisation such as FORM and Curtin University for it's own architecture is concerning. These buildings form a part of our architectural heritage and part of my own history.
Architecture is forever and stands the test of time. What happens years from now when the paint fades and the off form concrete has been forever ruined? I fear it is too late for these beloved buildings but hope the discussion generated by these events will at least encourage Form to reconsider/carefully consider any future PUBLIC campaigns.

Honesty devastated at the lack of respect Form WA are showing the historical brutalist architecture at Curtin University.
Form you have really fckd up on this one. These timeless facades have been de...stroyed by your lack of care to research. Even worse many other examples of brutalist architecture have been knocked in Perth from the lack of understanding. These were some of the few left we could enjoy, better yet we could study in create and learn. You and the artists brought from all over the world really need to take a long hard look at what you have done. #norespectformWA See More

Form change lives, our senses are brought to life through Art and Creativity.
Our hearts beat with a strength we thought had been lost, as slowly we are filled with a sense of accomplishment we felt M...ay never be a part of us again.
Just a little in a lost life can impact in away that sometimes can be very unexpected but never forgotten by those of us who got the chance to be apart of their projects.

I am at a loss to find the words to describe how disappointed I am by what FORM WA & Curtin University have done to the campus. A collection of brutalist architecture now irreversibly disfigured for t...he sake of a quick fix approach to place activation through the Public 2016 programme. See More

Form has made some very bad decisions.
Artists have the responsibility to know when its best to leave things well alone.
The concrete walls are far better art than the paint thats being slapped on the...m now.

I had a great day yesterday during the Public Art Walk. Thanks to Margot and Belinda for sharing some interesting info on the artists. I really liked the fun anecdotes about the painting process each ...artist went through. I had not been into town or Northbridge for ages and it was fabulous to see how things have improved and how the street art encourages culture in our gorgeous city. See More

The feedback from students, staff and visitors to FORM PUBLIC CAMPUS 2016 at Curtin has been overwhelmingly positive - the stunning works have added a new layer of cultural heritage we are incredibly ...proud to have and one that has already tangibly lifted the atmosphere and, wonderfully, the level of engagement between colleagues and students - as strangers and friends share a moment to chat about the work as it catches their eye and their imagination - gives them pause to stop and think and reflect on place - including the beautiful off-form concrete which is still everywhere you look - unadorned - respected and revered as it should be. This project was never about 'covering up' the concrete - only a tiny percentage of the walls have new works on them - it was about bringing more beauty and vibrancy into lives. It is an interesting debate - I have been a bit surprised by it, I think understandably Perth architects have a particular sensitivity about cultural heritage because everyone regrets too much CBD history bulldozed in the early days ... and as a trained designer who has spent 20 years in the arts in Perth I respect that and understand it - I was in Sydney recently and felt when admiring the heritage architecture. I've realised its exciting that in 2016 we can we can be having the same debate that has faced centuries of artists... what was once maligned and dismissed and even illegal comes into its own time of reverence... I find it interesting that some feel certain artforms have some how had 'their day',... I harken back to those whole movements that some of the artistic elite tried to dismiss as fads... Impressionism, Cubism - imagining Catholic traditionalists raging when Michelangelo first started his 'murals' on the built from! I don't mean to be flippant... however the calibre of these artists' work is exceptional, many of them classically trained (not that is makes one great but as a learning institution perhaps relevant...) and to suggest that the work of a visual artist is somehow lesser than an artist of the built form - it blew me away when I had an architect refer to the works as the 'appearance of superficial creativity' - just shows the 'poles' are alive in their differences as they've ever been! Perhaps the only salve for some will be that FORM PUBLIC CAMPUS 2016 will only adorn about 2% of Curtin's iconic off-form concrete - so there is plenty left in legacy... funny when I was a Curtin student it was known disaffectionately as as a 'concrete jungle' - it's built form so maligned in its comparison to UWA - so it has actually been wonderful to know how much Curtin's architecture means to the community. What everyone needs to remember though is that we are for the students, to do everything we can to improve the experience they have in studying with us in ways that enhance their ability to learn, supports their social learning and cares for their being - that means balancing the best of our cultural heritage with the best new ways to learn and live. I loved over hearing a student mentioning to another today how nice it was to look up and see something interesting and new instead just all that concrete - so on balance I thinking we're winning hearts and minds!

It might not quite be what locals were expecting but the Great Southern’s latest piece of giant artwork is certainly getting attention.

There’s a new princess of Princess Royal Harbour. Drifting high above the city and standing sentry over the sound, she’s a stately, whimsical seadragon. A soaring, subaqueous mural taking form across the giant silos at CBH Group’s Albany Grain Terminal. . A secret of the sea, literally invisible to the untrained eye, this myth-like creature rendered 35 metres high by street artists The Yok and Sheryo marks the south-westernmost edge of Australia and celebrates what’s beyond i...t.

Morphing two of the most extraordinary creatures of the ocean, both rare and exclusive to the coastal waters of south- western Australia, Albany’s seadragon has the bright red hue of the ruby seadragon and the gossamer tendrils of its leafy cousin. She’s coming to life in red, gold and grey. She has a home in the heart of your city. Now she just needs a name...

Send us your ideas at or just comment here or on our FORM Instagram and Twitter until the 24th March. The winning name submission will win a signed print by artists The Yok & Sheryo. #publicsilotrail

FORM added an event.

FORM’s current artist in residence, Norway based Stuart Frost, works at the interface of landscape and material craftsmanship. Driven by his reverence for the natural environment, Frost explores culture, myth, and histories within evocative locations.

This will be Frost’s second and final artist’s talk in Perth, marking the geographical midpoint of his stay before heading north to experience the contrasting beauty of the Pilbara region. He will reflect on his time spent in the Great Southern region, as this portion of his first Western Australian residency comes to a close, and his aspirations for his final month in residence.

This is a free event, all welcome, and you can enjoy a complimentary drink on us!

"Pilar Mata Dupont's Undesirable Bodies at FORM features video and photo images of the artist and her colleagues gathering up invasive water plants in the Pilbara. It puts quite a different spin on Monet's waterlillies, although the film feels more like a holiday activity than a lecture in conservation."

Zadok Ben-David, Kimsooja and Lisa Reihana are among the artists not to miss at this year's festival.
