Artwork Title: Psychagraphic Geotopographical Visualiser
Artists: Kit Webster & Art Centre Melbourne Workshop participants
Culminating from the result of a 2-day workshop held by Kit Webster at The Arts Centre Melbourne’s learning hub ‘The Channel’, Psychagraphic Geotopographical Visualiser utilises VDMX and Madmapper to generate a kaleidoscopic arrangement of video textures which are mapped onto a polygonal geometric wall mountable sculpture.
Kit is a mixed-media artist based in Melbourne, Australia. His works, which range from site-specific projections to digital sculptures, utilise precision programming and visualisation techniques to create captivating immersive environments. In continually pushing the boundaries of technology and art, Kit is not afraid to present experimental concepts designed to expose possibilities for the creation of a new kind of audiovisual aesthetic.
Last year he created ‘Hypercube’, a programmed LED-illuminated 4D cubic sculpture commissioned for the ‘White Night Melbourne’ festival and also for exhibition at the Abbotsford Convent arts precinct, and ‘Plateaux’, a multi-faceted laser-cut audiovisual sculpture illuminated with mapped projections, commissioned and acquired by Bendigo Art Gallery for their permanent collection.
A leader in music, sound & media technology, Arts Centre Melbourne’s The Channel offers creative workshops, community events and alternative ways to engage with the arts for schools, families and the general public.
