‘RLX field’ by Kate Geck
DATES:
Friday 20 – Saturday 21 September 2018
LOCATION: Atherton Gardens, 119 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy
Atherton Tower, Facade of Building 95

RLX Field is a temporary, immersive space designed for relaxation and pause. Step inside and surround yourself in a vibrating field of projected patterns by featured artist Kate Geck, letting the wash of colour and movement disconnect your busy mind.
On Saturday night, bring a rug to lie down and listen to a special guided meditation while the AV energy recharges you. Every half hour the truck will transmit a mantra of sound and light to guide you into a meditative state. With special viewing masks, you will experience the Gardens in a whole new way.

Kate Geck is an installation artist working with digital and sensory space. Her work explores connectivity and experience – what she terms as “mediated vs. unmediated immediacy”. Within a post-internet maximalist aesthetic, Geck considers the ways technology can skew and mask sensory experience.
