Up nice and early this morning, with not so favourable weather for the install of my work for the Newtown ArtSeat, a contemporary public art space at Newtown Hub outside the Neighbourhood community centre. The concept behind the work Nocturnal Vibrations highlights the character and vibe of Newtown, the night time culture and beautiful architecture of the historical buildings of King St. I adore living in Newtown and would visit regularly before becoming a local, there is only one thing I miss and that’s looking up and seeing a sky full of stars. Through Nocturnal Vibrations I wanted to bring the stars back into the city, by creating my own adaptation of King St combined with a photograph I recently took of the Milkyway in the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park NT, to reveal a magical sky to match the character and personality that is Newtown.
Newtown ArtSeat ‘Nocturnal Vibrations’ is on until 30 November 2016.
