ArtLife at Gertrude Street Projection Festival
How does the past affect the present? How has the city changed over the past 500 years? What do you remember from your ancestors? As part of the Gertrude Street Projection Festival, ArtLife animators use their memories and imaginations to create a digital image of what the future may become.
Through ArtLife’s characteristic storytelling, animators capture a cityscape sculpture through modern and archived footage projections to create an imaginary timeline of the past, present and future.
WHEN: Friday 21 July – Sunday 30 July, daily from sunset
VENUE: Gertrude Street, Fitzroy
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
ArtLife animators are a passionate group of cross-disciplinary artists working at Foostcray Community Arts Centre. Collectively over 3 years the group has produced 3 webisodes of Citizen Reporter (2016), Eaten by Technology (GSPF 2016) and one 30-minute web pilot All of you TV (2014-15). The animators draw from their life experiences and interest in the world around them to create content screened locally at film festivals and through the FCAC YouTube channel. The way in which graphic illustration is combined with analogue and digital animation is unique and captures ‘real time’ art making through media.
