The training workshop will occur in two stages, beginning with an intensive training session on 16-19 February 2017 in Port Adelaide, and culminating in a practical residency in Goolwa in April 2017. Additional opportunities will then be developed to support the trainees to devise projects in THEIR town.

1: Regional Digital Arts Collaboration: specialist skills involved in the production of projection art and digital arts projects.

From Grain to Glamour: Bright lights shine on Port Lincoln Silos in “Port to Port” production

Jan 1, 2016

Port Lincoln’s grain silos are hard to miss on any day but at the annual Tunarama festival 2016, brilliant moving images, sound and music turned one prominent silo stack into a giant animation screen visible all over town, in the exciting 40 minute long BOSTON BAY BROADCAST.

South Australia’s awarding winning projection art specialist, illuminart® created a glistening story of Port Lincoln that shone brightly over Boston Bay for four nights.

Illuminart’s lead animator and projection artist, Andy Petrusevics said it took a team of over a dozen people to put the show together and map it onto the silos which represent so much to the people of the region.

Launch of the Story Wall @ SLSA

Nov 11, 2015

The Story Wall at the State Library of South Australia was launched last night by the Hon. Jack Snelling MP Minister for the Arts, on a perfect balmy spring evening.

This fabulous project has been kept hush hush for some time but at last it is up and running, adding an exciting new feature to the Adelaide CBD.

The beautiful inaugural event commenced with a humorous scene of Colonel William Light opening the wall, and then in his famous pose (pointing over the city) launching a barrage of colourful confetti. Thus begins a witty, enlightening and engaging loop of over a dozen stories lasting almost 25 minutes, which repeats many times each night.
