Sydney-based artist Kate Mitchell’s new work All Auras Touch creates an expansive installation of human energy fields, otherwise known as auras.
Taking the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations as the starting point, Mitchell photographs the aura of one representative for each of the 1023 recognised occupations (from Anaesthetist to Zoologist) – capturing a snapshot of contemporary Australia. Participants are invited to register online to have their aura portrait taken and included in the evolving installation.
A series of workshops accompany the installation, exploring the way we work through practical seminars and philosophical discussions. In an era where empathy is all but lacking in public discourse, All Auras Touch reminds us that we are all energetic beings made up of the same matter.
