Come and experience the eccentricities and the stories of the Commonwealth of New Bayswater. New Bayswater is its own micronation, populated entirely by one solitary resident: the owner, operator, and sole employee of the New Bayswater Post—commonly regarded as the world’s worst postal service, with delivery times estimated between 1 and 52 weeks.
This March, a new branch of the New Bayswater Post is opening right here in the City of Karratha. Come have a chat to the enigmatic resident of this great (micro) nation, drop off a letter, and help him in his quest to create, send, and deliver the mail, as inefficiently as possible.

You’re invited to take part in this art-science experiment that will evolve over three days. Combining large-scale, collaborative drawing with an exploration of complex systems, you become part of an ongoing series that compares what patterns (social and aesthetic) emerge when groups of people follow a set of rules to make a drawing together.
The drawing will be made on the floor using colourful electrical tape, with no traditional drawing skills required.
All you’re asked to do is follow the rules.
