PLATYPUS is a print publication recognising unseen Australian icons at the intersection of stolen land and culture in the Anthropocene. It is not afraid to express ideas through casual poetry, political and visual jest and bold gestures.

Awareness of the sensuous existence of all lifeforms involves listening and tuning in - this publication is an offering to do so together; a way to share and connect over what is essential and necessary in a queerer way. Homophobia, transphobia, racism, classism, sexism, extractivism and capitalism inform the dominant and narrow views of our environment and help to justify its exploitation... What if we could rearrange, rather than erase or suffocate?
PLATYPUS, the publication, is swimming somewhere between the field and paper- a rare breed of strange parts that make a unique and beautiful whole. As something which is tricky to categorise, but once seen for its beauty, humour and evolutionary brilliance, it’s not hard to love or get excited about.

PLATYPUS Essentials
5 ESSENTIAL books housed in a box

PLATYPUS Essentials imaginatively engages with the necessary; being the state of the unavoidable - it is clear what is essential - food, water, shelter, energy, waste - just not how or why to engage more deeply? This series of art books by PLATYPUS asks what is the moral imperative of the misunderstood, engineered scapes that facilitate life as we know it and how do we begin to show empathy toward something outside of our worried minds? How do we begin to respect water and food as more-than-a-resources? How do we contemplate shelter for more-than-humans? How do we map lines of power, and how do we more deeply connect to the Bin Man? How do we deepen our relationship to all ecologies, especially those outside the traditional notions of what is “natural”?
