The Centre for Projection Art proudly presents Gertrude Street Projection Festival MiNi. With ten successful years of presenting famed Gertrude Street Projection Festival, 2018 is a year of creative development and careful research. The MiNi Festival will continue to engage the broader community and provide emerging projection artists and local creatives with a platform to experiment and exhibit their work, whilst working with local businesses to light up an important Melbourne location.
Feature artist, Kate Geck is preparing for an ambitious display of projection art, flooding the gardens with an immersive projection world for the public. Constantly changing, the projections will respond to audience interaction. Also exhibiting and staging live, observational and interactive projections of bright and bouncing colour will be emerging artists from Yarra Youth Services. Working collaboratively with a moving screen and storytelling machine, Projector Bike, the artists will use revolutionary animation software to transform the public space into captivating works of art.
