Poppet Bendigo - Part 1 - Creatability

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.

Lake Bolac Eel Festival - Part 4

The Birds...
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.
With Festival Director Elyjah McLeod
Thanks Again to Regional Arts Victoria for their support in making this project happen.

Lake Bolac Eel Festival 2018 - part 1

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 - Kaleidoscope - WA

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.

Dusk - Part 2

A few more photos of Dusk....hard to take shots and run the projections all at once but here you have it.

 The light painting by aerial dancers was probably my favourite thing from any of the shows. Lights on the performers (Abbey and Julia)  tracked and projected back up onto the silos. As they performed their routine the silos slowly filled in. Always a unique thing every time. With further exploration, it feels  like there is almost a whole show to be drawn from this. I have a few videos Ill sort through and post when I get a chance.
