One Word for Snow is a public art project by the Fremantle-based artist, Amy Perejuan-Capone. The project, where the artist staged sporadic, artificial blizzards around Perth CBD and Northbridge for a period of one month, was commissioned by TRANSART for the City of Perth Winter Arts Season. Lydia caught up with Amy over a cup of tea to reflect upon the month that has been.
In 2014 FORM held their first PUBLIC festival, facilitating a city-wide program of street art that continues to stop both visitors and Perth locals in their tracks.
