My new installation “River” opens tonight (11/04) at Incinerator Gallery in Moonee Ponds. It officially marks the beginning of Globelights 2014 program at the gallery, one of our satellite venues.
The work is comprised of custom made light bars tethered to tree branches through a specially designed rigging system, which enables them to hang in perfect unity. The effect in the wind is such that the lights bars oscillate and flow like a river.
I’m also working on a large commission for Vivid Sydney, with sound artist Jay Curtis (“Lysdexic”). Called “The Pendulum” it is a domes structure containing an interactive, light sensitive sound instrument. It will be installed in The Rocks Square in Sydney for the duration of this year’s Vivid Light festival… lots of welding to be done – pics soon.
