Returned to the Sydney studio after our time in K11 Art Village, Wuhan, China.
There’s our video sculpture in progress. Looking forward to the K11 + Videotage + ISEA show re:fuse in Hong Kong, opening on 20 May!
Our media façade design Beholder is receiving an Honourable Mention for the 2016 open call at the Open Sky Gallery in Hong Kong, to be bestowed at an upcoming event in May. Here it is on the 500m-high façade of Hong Kong’s International Commerce Centre (ICC). More at the project page.
Lull Studios’ video Drawn and Quartered is showing next week in Shillong, India as part of ://self-imaging, curated by artvideo.koeln for CologneOFF. Another one we wish we could see in person, though we’ll be happy to be in residence at the stunning Wuhan Art Village making new work for Videotage.
Selected for K11 Art Foundation residency with Videotage as part of ISEA2016! Thought Wuhan was a little town out of Shanghai——oh OK 10 million people. This will be a bit mind-blowing.
Our video Ovation screening with none other than Marina Abramovic in the exhibition section of the 7th Cairo Video Festival. Ahhhh we would sooooo love to be there we need a time-space-folding-machine-thing—
Fun pic from exhibition of Reinventing the Wheel in Screenspace, Melbourne
Great group of shortlisted artists. Some inspiring new finds.
Elena’s animated video Reinventing the Wheel is published in Runway: Australian Experimental Art, issue 28, ‘Movement’.
Thanks for the frames, collaborator Campbell Drummond, we’re framous! :-p
Lindsay, Ed and Lian continue to develop the real-time responsive installation Cathode Ray Trio (for modular synthesizers and mover). Performing one night only at 107 Projects, Sydney on Saturday 26 September. What are you syncing about?
While contracting to PTW Architects, Lull Studios designed this funky police station in Coffs Harbour. Although it was the subject of some consternation amongst locals when the scaffolding came down, we’re now informed that the people of this mid-north coastal region are super proud of the fresh and lively persona of the local copshop.
While the colours were sourced and arranged from our own down-res’d, pixellated photographs of the native bushland, the shape took on a decidedly aquatic look. OK, so inside there are the necessary holding cells and rows of workstations, but we managed some cool moments. How low can morale go when you work inside a big colourful stripy whale?
The hard lesson was that years of cost-cutting within the NSW Police Force mean that it no longer has enough resources to provide humane working conditions for those people charged with some of the most difficult jobs in our public services — child protection, anyone? Nowadays, police working conditions are outsourced to bean-counter Facility Managers who have no eye on quality of life, but rather just pursue the old-school single bottom line. The problems are complex but matters could be improved with some political will.
