Time for a little art – Triennial Exhibition – National Gallery of Victoria
We are usually writing about being lost; on our bikes or in our boots, so it makes a change to be posting about a very enjoyable visit to the Triennial Exhibition at the NGV.
The exhibition showcased contemporary art and design including some very special interactive works. We enjoyed the variety.
In the exhibit below, you face the screens which use military grade thermal imaging technology. The objective is show the plight of Syrian war refugees. As you stand in front of the screen your image is projected onto and stored in, the screen and you appear and disappear along with the many other images stored. In our case, as I interchanged with Ruth our images morphed into one – the result (bottom) was rather concerning (for cliff))
Ruth faces one of the three screen that capture and store your image – you can see the confusion of portraits on the screen
Ruth’s image is predominant at this point
Cliff and Ruth’s images start to morph
Things start to get rather weird as Cliff and Ruth morph into Cluth
