Open Spatial Workshop (Terri Bird, Bianca Hester & Scott Mitchell)


Open Spatial Workshop (OSW) is a collaborative art group comprising Terri Bird, Bianca Hester and Scott Mitchell. Over the past 13 years OSW has produced a broad range of work spanning sculpture, installation, curated events, publications and video production. Their activities are framed by an ongoing interest in physical forces and how the temporalities of these forces are registered.

Converging in time, MUMA 2017, explored connections between materiality, the shaping of territories and the various politics inscribed in place. This was framed through their research into the Natural Sciences Collection at Museum Victoria, employing specific specimens to explore entanglements between geology, geography, colonisation, resource extraction and philosophical thought.
