Construction in Process VI. The Bridge 1998.

In 1998 the 6th edition of Construction in Process, a Polish born arts event, was held in Melbourne.  With many events being conducted around the city, a focal point was "Pile On" which saw a derelict building on Collins Street, given over to a bunch of artist for installations and happenings.  Mr Brown took over a suite to create his own little animated corner.  Painting the interior blood red and then adorning the walls with all manner of objects and creatures, rendered in black ink on white card.  

For the opening evening/event his alter ego Hot Coco inhabited the lair, continuing to create fantastical imagery to bedeck the walls, or be given away as souvenirs, much to the wonderment and delight of the audience.
