Daisy Chain is a formal trick to generate a social and aesthetic situation in which ten artists were initially sent the Daisy Chain email invitation to participate in a weekend social/art event at artist run space Marrickville Garage.

Daisy Chain is a momentary social, artistic experiment that will dissipate, leaving residues of potential and possibilities, connecting in unexpected ways through networks of friendship and art practice to generate an unpredictable assembly in an event of unknown scale and content.

Marrickville Garage is the ideal venue for an experiment like Daisy Chain, which aims to fill the garage to excess with art and goodwill. The final form of the event will be unpredictable – it could be excessive and chaotic with artworks and people crammed into the space, or it might be quiet and tasteful, depending on how the system works and what kind of atmosphere is generated. The outcome, whatever it is, will be a social event that brings artists together in a momentary formation that then dissipates, but with residues of potential to lead on to other things.
