Some tests from last week with Creatability. Exploring using a light-painting technique as a way to create the visuals in one of the scenes that will be projected onto the Poppet head in Rosalind park later in the year (Oct 20) as part of a large-scale projection event there.
The tech is a refinement of one of the elements of the Dusk performance at the nati Frinj last year but tweaked to allow us to record the evolving lightpainting to use as video elements at a later point.

Having left them as metal skeletons a few weeks ago its been great to come back and see them take on a whole new life with a layer of grasses harvested from the lake and woven onto the frames by the students at Lake Bolac College (Under the supervison of the incredibly talented duo of Bronwyn Razem and Katja).
The Emu was finished off by the students prior to the festival whilst the wings of the Brolga were complete during the festival...
...just in time for the Twilight Ceremony on saturday night.

Have been spending some time down at Lake Bolac working with some of the students there tocreate some metal bird scultptures for the festival this year.
This is phase one. The next stp is for the weavers to harvest some ative grasses off the lake and weave them onto the birds to create the feathers and wings. Looking forwards to getting back there in a week or so to see how they've evolved.
Thanks to Regional Arts Victoria for supporting this project. Thus far its been a joy.

FaceOff up and runing at Kaleidoscope Festival - Joondalup (WA). Lots of other great things on offer here too. From projection to light installation to inflatable. Seems like the team here have pulled together a pretty diverse and exciting bunch of stuff. Lots of local content too. My bottom line to judging the worth of an arts festival these days is by much effort they put into promoting the local talent and Kaleidoscope delivered on this front with some excelent prjections by local creators.
