Spilt Milk Festival Video, Canberra, 2017

Spilt Milk Festival Video, Canberra, 2017 1600 1000 Metaform

Great new video just in!

thanks to editing by Isabelle Levien!

Split Milk wrapped up an epic 3 major events in November, had one day to turnaround between unpacking  from Strawberry Fields and packing and leaving for Spilt Milk in Canberra!  A pretty full on project, designing building and installing these sculptures for Spilt Milk Festival, but so happy with the outcome in the end. So  many challenges from designing them to hang from stage structures that hadn’t themselves been designed by the time I had to start building, to fitting several thousand individual sequins, which took nearly a week  on their own or being on tech support call for 12 hours of the event and then straight into packdown at midnight!  But a great response, worked flawlessly, looked fantastic at night.  Pretty crazy being in the middle of a crowd of 10,000 wildly excited 20 year olds trying to take photos, crazy good, but still crazy!

Land Art Generator Initiative – Castlemaine Workshop

Re-Imaging Energy Workshop

Very excited to have been invited to take part in the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) workshop starting in Castlemaine this weekend.  Its going to be a great learning opportunity and hopefully we’ll come up with some great sculpture/renewable energy/placemaking ideas and get to know some interesting people!

From the program:

Re-imagining Castlemaine is an invited design workshop to bring forward ideas for an energy generating public artwork for a site in Castlemaine and is a part of the Regional Centre for Culture program of events. 

The project is a regional component of the Land Art Generator Initiative 2018 (LAGI), a global ideas competition for art and renewable energy hosted by the State of Victoria and focused on the St Kilda Triangle site in the City of Port Phillip.

The design process for the Castlemaine artwork will take a creative placemaking and community-oriented design approach while merging on-site renewable energy infrastructure with the landscape, the architecture, and with other environmental sustainability measures.

The Castlemaine workshop will also provide professional development opportunities to local artists, architects, designers and engineers interested in
employing energy technologies as the material for their work, and will point to pathways for innovation and experimentation in the delivery of public art.
