Flinders Ranges Bush Festival
Community Arts and Placemaking, Festival Project
Quorn, South Australia
Quorn in the Flinders Ranges, was home to the unique ‘Flinders Ranges Bush Festival’ which featured Steam heritage, all manner of bush crafts and… projection art onto local buildings.
Created by Cindi Drennan with the help of local artists Val Francis, Elizabeth Collins, Joy and Daniel Campers, along with creative contributions by several classes at the Quorn Area School. Local community members helped put up projectors and wrangle umbrellas in moments of inclement weather.
The local Town Hall was illuminated with photos of families, artwork and drawings by school children that colourfully wrapped the buildings and surprised everyone with the playful representations of local scenes. Photos by Lis Collins enlarged flocks of galahs to the size of buildings.
The project combined animation and projection mapping, transforming local buildings with artwork and light in unexpected ways… and giving a very small community a taste for the power of projection art.
