Art and About

Haunting. Craig Walsh, “Emergence”.

This is one of the best uses of projection mapping I’ve seen in awhile. I love it when art takes technology, and does it one better than anything advertising and marketing has done. Don’t get me wrong, I think projection mapped events sponsored by big brands and companies is an exciting new form of marketing. Unlike those, Craig Walsh’s sculpture “emergence” makes you think.
If you are in Sydney Australia, you have one night left to see this in person at South Hyde Park. The sculpture pays homage to the park’s his­to­ry as a meet­ing place for civic unrest, protest and direc­tion action,with the projected faces telling sto­ries about civic involve­ment.
