Developed as part of the Splendid Art Lab program, Pyrotechnic text work Let's Get Metaphysical was premiered at Splendour in the Grass music festival in July 2012. Using Olivia Newton-John’s 1981 single "Physical" as a placeholder, the phrase "let’s Get Metaphysical" exploits this reference to music history, encouraging punters to transcend the more visceral suggestions Newton-John and her writers originally intended, and explore higher mental planes and states of consciousness.
