The 12 month In-Habit International Artist Residency took place from January 2009 to February 2010 and was supported by Punctum Inc, Arts Victoria, the Melbourne International Arts Festival, and the Abbotsford Convent Foundation.
Once was created for the In-Habit Live Art Festival, February 2010. Once was an experiment that sought to blend the cafe experience with the convent's history, the mystical and even the revelatory.
Once invites two strangers to meet in private and in silence for ten minutes. The work investigates how we might come together to spend time without words. Once asks, 'Can silence be as articulate as language?' Following each encounter participants are invited to debrief with a member of triage.
