The images in this repository are drawn from a collection of #redactionart discovered in ASIO surveillance files held by the National Archives of Australia in 2016. You can explore the entire collection of #redactionart here.
In 2017, I exhibited The Redaction Zoo as part of 'Beauties and Beasts' at the Belconnen Arts Centre.
In 2021, I updated my redaction finder and reprocessed all the available ASIO files, finding some more #redactionart in the process. This is described in Secrets and lives, a video I presented at the (Re)Create Symposium.
By tracing the original JPG images, I've created a series of SVG files. I used these to create badges and temporary tattoos.
All of the SVG images are available in this repository for you to download and use in your own #redactionart projects.
Full file references are included to enable you to correctly cite each #redactionart image. The image filenames also include the file barcode and page number.
To make your own badges, simply upload the SVGs to your preferred laser cutting service. (I used Online Laser Cutting). Of course you can resize them as necessary in a vector graphics editing program.
For the tattoos I used StrayTats. I had to fill in the SVG outline and save as a JPG for upload.
If you make use of these files please share them using the #redactionart tag (you could also star this repository).
