This is the actual audio of my ABC Central West interview with Kia Handley that relates to my other blog post you can see here
I don't really know what happened in that introduction at the very beginning of this interview, nerves I guess.
This ABC Central West interview was live, although I wasn't with Kia in the studio, I was on the phone sitting under a tree in a park in Mt Druitt, during work at my (former) real job. It seemed as though I went through a phase of doing this kind of thing, especially early 2016 when things really started to move quickly. I think there was one month where I ended up having something like a dozen media requests! It's tough keeping Lost Collective ticking over while working a full-time job.
I don't think that any of my interviews are fully representative of what I am about, it's difficult to get everything out that I want to in 16 minutes but I think I got pretty close.
In saying all this, I know the content of a blog post is supposed to be informative and engaging, and I do my best where I can but the core of the content here is the audio interview itself.
Broken windows, rusting equipment, large spaces - you can see what might be romantic about an abandoned space.Pair that with a photographer and a little bit of history and you have Lost Collective (www.facebook.com/lostc0llective/?fref=photo). A project run by Brett Patman who told Kia Handley about the places he finds.
