RMIT Diploma of Visual Arts students have taken on the challenge to create temporary works of light infused art, expanding into the Atherton Gardens Precinct, carving out a unique space along Gertrude Street. Students works in light sculpture and projection installation will be scattered throughout the gardens inviting audiences to experience these explorations of space and time.

Collectively the class of 2017 bring a plethora of curious and imaginative responses to “Unfurling Futures”. A short sixteen weeks ago they came together, for the first time, to explore the intricate natures of art and concepts of Public Spaces. In this time they have worked collaboratively and begun to develop skills through observation, investigation and action. Their interpretation, of what public spaces are and can be, demonstrates their diversity and acceptance of others, now and into the future.
