[New York] : Visionaire Publishing, 1999. Limited to 6000 numbered copies.

Issue 30 of the avant garde photography magazine, presented in the form of a game, featuring photographs by Australian artists and sitting in a box designed by Louis Vuitton.

“30 GAME is not only a collection of art but also a game. Taking as our starting point the Louis Vuitton Challenge, the qualifying round of sailboat races for the America’s Cup, we assembled teams of artists, photographers, and image makers to represent each of the participating countries: Australia, France, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States. In the spirit of games, the issue takes the form of a puzzle in which sixteen cubes, when placed in the correct configuration, form one of six possible images. The cubes, along with a portfolio of all forty-two images, sit in a silk-screened Lucite case by Louis Vuitton.” – the publisher

The Australian edition features the work of Tracey Moffatt, Patricia Piccinini, Matthys Gerber, Rosemary Laing, Anne Zahalka, and Lyndall Milani.

Another example is in the National Gallery of Australia.
