Enlighten 2016

This year I was selected to participate in Canberra Enlighten Project. Images were projected onto buildings within the Parliamentary Triangle by The Electric Canvas. Installations on both Questacon & The National Portrait Gallery were animated by the Electric Canvas which elevated them to another level!

The Autumnal series was projected onto The National Portrait Gallery.

Here are a few thoughts behind the concept of the Autumnal installation. Thanks to Clayton Hairs for shooting the video.

Three of my Metalmorphis series of rusty car detail were projected onto Questacon. I added extra images so that the animation could grow from extreme macro detail and keep zooming out to reveal the whole car! I loved that the Questacon installation projected onto two sides of the building simultaneously and created an almost live sculpture.

Also a macro photo of green lichen and cracked blue paint was projected onto Old Parliament House (MoAD). The scale difference was just amazing and actually quite hard to get your head around. Taking something maybe 50mm square and projecting it across the entire facade of MoAD but maintaining the amount of detail was incredible. It looked interesting from whatever viewing distance you were at, from right down at the lake edge to standing on the front steps!
Here is a gallery of a few photographs from the various sites:
