In preparation for the Port to Port Odyssey, we acquired “Moby” – an old coaster that is being kitted out with high powered projectors ready to offer a free show in each place.
Moby has been kitted out with three high powered Epson projectors, sound system and power for all situations, so we can take projection art to places where it would normally be impossible.
Once Moby’s fit out is complete all is ready for illuminating silos, big buildings and town halls with animated projection art and stories in free public shows.
We are inviting people to come along to see these shows – dates are at http://travellinglight.illuminart.com.au/
Look at Moby now! Bright and beautiful! Ready to take projection art to all corners of South Australia.
Moby was a bit of a horror show to begin with, and the gallery below shows the makeover in progress. It would have been easier if we could have just projected the repairs onto Moby !
This project is part of illuminart’s ‘Port to Port’ statewide program, creating digital stories to connect port towns throughout South Australia with their past, present and future through the exciting portal of projection art. It has been made possible with the support of the Australia Council for the Arts.
We also acknowledge our partners and sponsors Flinders Ports, District Council of Streaky Bay, City of Onkaparinga, Epson Australia, and many regional towns and businesses (Thank you!).
