Time Travel is an interactive installation of an imagined clock dial that encircles the earth, projected in light. According to the viewpoint it transforms, and plays with the properties of light and the way we perceive colour to create illusions with form and text. Sited in Melbourne’s first suburb of Fitzroy and the ancient lands of the Wurundjeri, it spikes an arrow of time through the past, present and future.
Jessie Stanley lives and works in Central Victoria, and is a candidate in Masters of Arts, Art in Public Space at RMIT University. She was the recipient of the Besen Emerging Artist Mentorship with Melbourne Fringe Festival 2016, and artist in residence for MoreArts Festival, City of Moreland 2016.
Within her practice, Stanley embraces the congruence of graphic design and visual art as platforms for sharing ideas and creating social connections. Through typography, mapping, printed ephemera, sculpture, and projection, Stanley creates scenarios for audiences to consider the sublime Universal origins of the Earth. Unearthing the stories bound to a place and time, Stanley seeks to unravel how place can connect us through time and reveal pivotal aspects of evolution.
