What is the strange connection between French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre and this abandoned road grader in the Australian outback?
All will become clear in Mark Thomson's exhibition, Advice to Travellers.
Despite (or perhaps because of) studying fine art at the South Australian School of Art in the early 1970s, Mark Thomson has pursued a career in writing and design for the last four decades.
In addition to being the founder and Research Director of the slightly prestigious Institute of Backyard Studies, Mark is also the author and photographer of numerous books including Blokes & Sheds,Makers, Breakers & Fixers, Rare Trades and more recently, The Lost Tools of Henry Hoke.
He has also designed or curated numerous exhibitions for organisations that include the National Museum of Australia, Questacon and the SA Maritime Museum.
