4dLUX is projecting visuals this NYE at the Haven Bar and Restaurant in Murwillumbah for the town’s initiation into the world of electronic beats!
A short clip from phone footage of 4dlux video at The Carnival of the Here and Now at The Cedar’s Nursing Home in Casino NSW organised by Chris Mead from Creature Tales with performers from Murwillumbah and Circus Train.
A long held vision of mine has been to provide visuals at Nursing Homes to provide enjoyment and entertainment for the elderly. They are so often forgotten in our individualised western culture, rather than cherished and nurtured for their wisdom in others. How could l have imagined that a chance conversation over breakfast at a BnB in Lismore with Chris Mead from Creature Tales would facilitate that vision into reality.
The video concept was based around short statements Chris had collected from residents which were then transferred to badges that residents could wear on the day. These statements were then animated into simple text which projected onto a wall as an adjunct to the performances.
Last Friday night I provided visuals with a live feed for Tweed Creative and Piece by Piece local Youth night. An open mike for up and coming young stars to get up and have a play. There’s some fabulously talented young people in the area and it’s great to support such an event. Thanks to Chana Waters from Tweed Creative for awesome pics!
This year I’ve been involved with a collaboration called Internal Astronomy and including Dr Greg and Nick Gruen makin’ the rhythms. ‘Like’ Internal Astronomy on Facebook for latest updates.
In October 2014 I was fortunate enough to attend the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria. The theme was on ‘Change’ and the works and speakers were astounding.
Later by chance, I went to a video/spoken word event, Videotext in Bramberg also. I was able to film this event for the promoter and artists.
This post is an addition as I just realised while now 2016 I’d added nothing about this trip. There will be more to follow at some point!
So excited that l just have to put a plug in here for my favorite people from Illuminart who finally received some well deserved and overdue recognition at the SA Ruby Awards last week! 😀
Last week I did filming for Zahra and Nadine Smith from Creative People’s Collective of Zahra’s final performance class for Studio Aperio in Murwillumbah. Zahra will be moving to Melbourne in October though distance will prove no barrier to our ongoing collaborations. Next week l hope to film interviews and then edit some of the brilliant footage we got on the performance evening.
In June 2013 l was accepted into the Access Arts Queensland Rising Star Masterclass which was held on 22nd & 23 July in Brisbane. It will be a wonderful opportunity to work within a multi-diciplinary format with other Queensland artists with disability concerns. Prior to the workshop itself there was an online collaboration with tasks set by the facilitators on the masterclass topic ‘Tiny Little Lies’.
