Before her exhibition opens in January artist Kate Mitchell is appealing to the public to help find people employed in occupations listed by the Australian and New Zealand Bureau of Statistics’ Standard Classification of Occupations.

Why would she do this you might ask? Well, the answer is that All Auros Touch is going to provide a snapshot of contemporary Australia by revealing the human energy fields, otherwise known as auras, of everyday Australians.

For the exhibition, Kate Mitchell will use electromagnetic field imaging equipment to photograph aura of one person for each of the 1,023 recognised occupations. Each aura portrait will then form part of an expansive installation which will remind us that we are all energetic beings made up of the same matter.
