Kingston Arts presents
Electroprojections: Static Centre
Curated by Electrofringe Ltd
G3: Thur 13 Sep – Sat 13 Oct 2012
Kingston Arts continue to innovate their contemporary “arts in the ‘burbs” offering with another first for the City of Kingston. The forthcoming exhibition by Electrofringe presents a range of diverse, exciting and emerging projection artists from Australia and overseas, and will take over the G3 Artspace for a month from mid-September. The gallery has a street-facing, floor-to-ceiling window allowing the projections – which will be screened from sunset each evening of the exhibition – to be viewed from Parkers Road.
Electrofringe presents a year-round program of experimental electronic arts and culture dedicated to presentation, skills development and artistic exchange. The program focuses on uncovering emergent artforms with an emphasis on encouraging interaction between emerging and established artists.
Bryden Williams, Flying People 2011, Sydney AUS
Flying People is a playful celebration of the human body in motion – jumping figures held in mid air suspension by multiple video grabs loops and arranged to an unheard beat. Framing and projection create a playful illusion of continuous and jagged suspension of bodies in space, against the rugged rock bluffs and blue sky of Glen Davis, in Capertee Valley, NSW. The joy and movement of bouncing on a trampoline becomes selectively frozen and projected in HD video, evoking a weightless world of earth, sky and euphoria.

Danny Ford, Threeeyedtiger.org 2012, Brisbane AUS
threeeyedtiger.org is an extension of my current interest in appropriated subcultural tropes, in this instance the imagery and language of an imagined organisation of ambiguous intent.
Danny Ford is a multidisciplinary artist, working within self imposed parameters of Painting Projects, Sculpture Projects and Image Capture Projects (video, film, photomedia). Ford’s artwork is process based, and concerned with the application of tactics and procedures to existing forms. Within this ongoing investigation, Ford’s practice operates as enquiry into the historical role of the art object, and the function of the contemporary artist.
Commencing his PhD in Media Arts in 2010, Ford’s work has been exhibited in exhibitions nationally and in 2007 was awarded the Melville Haysom Memorial Art Scholarship Award and the Jean Clarice Searle Research Award. http://www.danny-ford.com/
