Human Designs: Zlatko Balazic and John McKee (aka Jack Morph).

Both Zlatko and John have come from very different backgrounds. This has made for a highly fertile and vibrant mix of life experiences upon which to synthesis innovative design ideas, producing truly original artwork. As such, this creative process has involved the inimitable blending of various art mediums and new technologies. The organic, ‘morphic’ quality of their work has become their binding signature style. Presently their main goal is to engage their audience through direct, tactile light and sound displays, or what they like to refer to as ‘LightStations’. They can’t wait to see it.

Melinda Muscat

Melinda is a Surrealist at heart, drawing inspiration from Hieronymus Bosch, who’s work she saw at age seven. The magical world of The Garden of Earthly Delights transformed her vision of how amazing life can be when the imagination is free. And since then she’s made it her focus to create wonderlands of her own.

A true believer in colour she has a passion to make the world around her as colourful as possible. “Why should the world be grey or beige? Why should we conform to everyone else’s style or fashion? Be yourself, be brave, have fun, let your imagination run wild, who knows what you can create until you let yourself be free, be you!”

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
