As Below, So Above is an exhibition of objects and contemporary jewellery incorporating new technologies of 3D printing and hydraulic pressing. It is an exploration of environmental issues surrounding the extensive development of coal seam gas mining and its impact on communities and the natural environment.

Environmental and ethical considerations motivate and inform Emily Copp’s work. She is a contemporary jewellery and object designer and maker who practises out of SquarePeg Studios in Sydney’s vibrant inner west.

Join Emily Copp and a member of the Lock the Gate Alliance at AirSpace Projects on Friday 11 March 2016 for a night of awareness raising documentaries around the subject of unconventional gas mining.

Australia has seen rapid expansion of coal and coal seam gas development over the last 5 years, despite widespread and vocal community opposition. Come along to find out more about the issues at hand as well as listen to guest speakers and engage in conversation around this important topic.

This event is a fundraiser for Lock the Gate Alliance, a national grassroots organisation made up of over 40,000 supporters and more than 250 local groups, who are concerned about unsafe coal and gas mining. These groups are located in all parts of Australia and include farmers, traditional custodians, conservationists and urban residents.

Hosted by AirSpace Projects and Emily Copp in conjunction with her exhibition, As Below, So Above, a collection of work made in response to her concerns around coal seam gas mining.
