Illuminart’s projection sculpture combines animated projection and structural forms to form a magical illusion of a structure coming to life with light and image. We have created pieces for festivals and as backdrops for performance. In the right setting they may also be a beautiful, unusual audiovisual public art piece. The technique complements our work in building projection, architectural projection and immersive events, offering a new way to interact with light and sound.
Highlights of our work in this area include:
Fractured Heart, a projection sculpture (2011) – backdrop to Gotye live performance during the 2011 ARIA Awards ceremony is a bespoke projection sculpture featuring animated pixel mapped animations based on the film clip for the song.
Shipshape – a mobile projection sculpture (2011) – first appearing in the the Port Festival 2011, this ship is a lantern, roving spectacle and has an integrated projection system. Shipshape is tourable / portable and available for tour to fesivals and events in Australia.
Projector Pods – projection sculpture (2010) – first appearing at Junction 2010, the pods are a weatherproof outdoor installation concealing projection systems. These sculptures appear regularly at our regional outdoor events.
Promise, a projection sculpture (2008) – twin six metre high structures composed of patchworked wedding dresses and lace on a portable/demountable steel framework, with integrated AV system.
