This study focuses on the relationship between Australian art and environmentalism investigating art that responds to environmental and ecological concerns. It is being undertaken with the intention of better understanding this form of art.

This survey is intended to gather data about how the general public view this form of art and gauge how effective it may be. You will be asked to view an artwork and provide your opinions based on specific questions. You will also be asked to provide more general feedback on your opinion of this form of art, your previous experiences (if any) with it and your views on the environment.

Your participation will provide a much greater understanding of how Australian art that is underpinned by ecological or environmental concerns is viewed in this country, and you will be contributing to the knowledge and history of Australian art.

The information you provide will be kept anonymous and will be collated with the responses of others who have completed the survey. You may leave the survey and withdraw your participation at any point before submitting your responses. All information will be retained for five years and stored digitally.

Likewise individuals’ responses will be kept confidential by the researcher and not be identified in the reporting of the research. However the researcher cannot guarantee the confidentiality or anonymity of material transferred by email or the internet.

The data provided in this survey will be used to produce a doctoral thesis which, once examined and accepted will be available online for viewing. Should you wish to view the outcome of the research the link will be made available through:

Super Easy Orange Vinegar Surface Spray

Standard

image

This is really easy to make and makes an effective, chemical free, environmentally friendly spray which can be used for cleaning surfaces and bathrooms.

All you need is oranges, a peeler, white vinegar and a jar.

It’s three simple steps:
1. Peel the orange and place the peel in the jar.
2. Add vinegar to the jar and place the lid on.
3. Leave the jar for approximate 4 week’s to cure and your spray is ready to use.

If you are trying to clean something that needs a bit more work, just sprinkle some bi carb down first. It will smell strong at first but this will clear soon.

I started using this when I found I was coughing a lot after cleaning the bathroom and best thing is I don’t have to worry about my little toddler helper being exposed to nasty chemicals.

I like to make this when I am making cordial. Waste not! Lol.

Vegetarian Cornish Pasty – Watch this space…

Standard

I’m feeling inspired having just eaten a Vegan Cornish Pasty from the health food place around the corner. Come on, how hard can it be? I’ve been collecting some resources to attempt my own, which I’m going to chuck here for safe keeping. Watch this space for my big attempt. lol

To start with an easy puff pastry recipe from The Bush Gourmand.

I’ll need:

  • 500g flour
  • 500g cold butter, cut into chunks
  • 110ml icy water

Note – make in 2 batches

Followed by a highly rated Vegetable Cornish Pasty recipe from allrecipes.com

I’ll Need:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, sliced thin
  • 1 turnip, peeled and diced
  • 1 large potato, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 pound mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon yeast extract spread (Hmm, let’s not. I’m going to try homemade veggie stock)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 pound shredded Cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg, beaten

I think I might add corn, and maybe pumpkin.

And lastly some instructions from people who probably know what their doing better than me!

Megan’s Perfect Pasties

Trick’s of Yum’s Pasties

Watch this space. I’ll post when I attempt it (or maybe after I’ve done it a couple of times and have perfected it :)).
