WALKING IN THE COLOUR FIELD: LOCAL AND REMOTE (2018)
ArticulateUpstairs, Articulate Project Space, Leichhardt, Sydney.
This interactive artwork consists of two HD TV screens and two painted timber boards leaning up against the wall. Colours on the largest screen change according to the location of two participants who wear sensors. As they traverse the city, each person sends and receives colour via a specially designed sensor armband.
The smaller screen responds to changes inside the gallery. Its ‘local’ colours change as viewers pass in front of the adjacent painted panels. Viewers can also track the changing colours on their mobile devices.
Placed in public view but reflecting the movement of people inside and outside the gallery, WALKING IN THE COLOUR FIELD echoes the way that public and private spaces are increasingly entwined through mobile technologies.
WALKING IN THE COLOUR FIELD was presented in FOOTSTEPS IN THE CORRIDOR, the final exhibition in a series curated by Nadia Odlum on the theme of Navigation.
