Also, Julia Davis: Dark Matter. In response to the ideas in the Bimblebox touring exhibition, Northern Beaches-based artist Julia Davis draws upon the ideas of art and science to create an installation that is site specific.

Also, Peter Tilley & Andy Devine: Black Harvest. Two like-minded artists collaborate to create rich and complex conceptual works reflecting the industrial landscape of the Newcastle region. A duality of experience is explored through ideas of displacement, abandonment and isolation within the environment. Through the use of found objects, materials and symbolism, Tilley and Devine examine histories, nostalgia and memory. Andy Devine brings to the industrial imagery an additional layer of meaning by incorporating a personal narrative referencing his homeland in Englandís industrial northeast.
