Photographed by Ed Janes, these pictures capture an essence of the stunning projections by illuminart for the Anzac Albany commemorations in November 2014.
We were asked if we could do some small projections during Unley Gourmet Gala (an annual outdoor event showcasing some of South Australia’s finest local food, wine, fashion, music and entertainment). Our team created ambient projection installations for two sites: the King William Road site featured animation by Luku Kukuku and Zero, and Penny Campton light-painted live in the Kids Zone. These additions to the festival added a playful touch and helped bring the street to life after dusk. The Gala, managed by Keito events, was held on King William Road Unley on 20th January 2015.
Are you interested in the artform of projection art (aka projection mapping, architectural projection, etc) and want to wrap your head around what’s involved in creating it? Join Cindi Drennan (director of illuminart) at this upcoming workshop to develop knowledge in the artform, methods & professional practice. The event will be held during VIVID 2015, and will condense the creative, technical, design and business considerations into a jam packed weekend workshop to assist curators, event managers, artists and designers get the full story behind this artform.

Illuminart have been “highly commended” in the 2014 Civic Trust awards for the New Light Industrial project, in recognition of the impact on the local arts and business community.
Illuminart will embellish the urban streetscape along a section of King William Road Unley, as part of the Unley Gourmet Gala on the 20th of January 2015.
One of Adelaide’s most prestigious events, the annual Unley Gourmet Gala is an exciting outdoor gourmet experience showcasing some of South Australia’s finest local food, wine, fashion, music and entertainment.
Look for ambient projection and light painting in two sites along the strip from dusk until 10pm. Animation by Zero and Luku featuring the illuminart peacock will adorn 183 King William Road, and Penny Campton will provide light entertainment at the Kids Zone on Boffa Street, assisted by Mosaic AV.
Barossa Illuminated, an initiative of the Barossa Council, will see the creation of a body of work for presentation in the Barossa Regional Gallery’s new projection space. The works will showcase the diversity of local art and, through the new medium of digital projection, bring to life the variety of art, design and craft practiced in the region.
The participation in Albany’s projection projects has been enormous and incredible, so much that we have dedicated this post to EVERYONE who has been involved. We keep finding more people to acknowledge too!
He feels the touch of a human hand,
He is nervous but need not fear,
For his soldier pal is standing near.
These few lines are part of a poem, The Light Horse At Sea, written recently by local community member and photographer Julie Holland in response to working with the local Light Horse re-enactment group. Her original text was adapted into verse by Ian Lilburne and Selina Hill, and it is to be integrated into illuminart’s projections over the four days during Anzac Albany.
Luku Kukuku and Craig Laurendet travelled to Queenstown Tasmania, to present Undercurrents at the 2014 Queenstown Heritage Arts Festival, located in “one of the most beautiful landscapes I have seen,” according to Craig. This festival is a biennial event which this year coincided with the centenary of the Lake Margaret Power Station – the oldest operating hydro-electric power station in Australia and a site of high cultural and industrial significance to Tasmania.
With barely a month left until the Anzac Albany commemoration, it is all go as Cindi Drennan and Ian Lilburne work with artists and actors in Albany this week. The group will record songs and poetry for the projects and create video footage of some scenes with local actors, video artist John Carberry and photographers from the Albany Film Users Group.
