Wired LabIn Profiler 3 realtime tv takes you on a road trip to the country for the sights and sounds of Wired Open Day 2014; and then to outer space with Theatre Kantanka's Club Singularity.

When you return there's a journey into the dark heart of the Adelaide Biennial with Nick Mitzevitch (AGSA), and Willoh S Weiland & Aphids take you to the drive-in in Dromana.

Plus there's a quadruplet of profiles on emerging and established artists and our Profiler survey—Under the Influence—where we ask an inspiring bunch of artists to tell us the films, books and sounds that inspire them.

Words, Pictures, Sounds


A creative individual’s desire for ideas is unquenchable. For Profiler #3 we’ve asked artists to tell us about the words, pictures and sounds that have influenced their practice overall and what’s currently keeping them tipsy.

BaileyJohn Bailey
RT's Melbourne theatre correspondent tells us about his writing adventures as a five-year-old and why he's still doing it.

"A critic is a haunting. We're there but we shouldn't be and that can result in humility or arrogance. I feel that mystery has more appeal than authority, though there's ample evidence against that position." More


Laetitia Wilson

RT's WA visual, media and hybrid arts reviewer tells us how she sees the relationship between text and art.

"Writing in the visual arts for me is about having that extra sensory component to text, having more than words, having images, sounds, tactile and immersive experiences available as zones of research." More
