Crystal System

Crystal System
Andy Harper & Leonie DuBarry-Gurr

An immersive and accessible sculptural installation, Crystal System offers new vantage points from which to come to terms with one's existence, in relationship to the world and others around us.


Joe Moran

Stalaglite was developed using a large amount of recycled materials (namely glass bottles of all shapes and sizes). It shows new ways in which we can repurpose our everyday waste and reduce our ecological footprint.

Paul Mazzitelli & Tony Coleman

LUMA is a generative installation that fuses individual scores of sonic evolution with an ever-evolving visual character. Combining projection, LED lighting, lasers and custom projection mapping techniques with a constantly evolving soundtrack.

18 Heartbeats
Sean Clark

18 Heartbeats is an experimental artwork in Sean Clark's Colloquy series. Twenty computer-controlled lights exchange colours when they hear each other’s heartbeats, resulting in complex and seemingly unpredictable light sequences.
