LIGHTSCAPES / 30 October 2017 to 1 April 2018 at Knox Place
Forming a part of the 2017 Graduate Exhibition for the Master of Arts – Art in Public Space this series of images represents works undertaken in the public realm by five of our recent Graduates: Luping Chen, Grace Leone, Jasmine Pilcher, Julie Stevens and Lyndall Watson.
Candidates explore the public realm in keeping with their arts practice and research interests. These images present a curated mapping of the research journey undertaken in a range of public contexts that engage in conversations around borders, cities and construction, affect and immersion, infrastructure and memory.

Long lived by the idea of a starry sky, this series explores the Australian night sky and its stars as an investigation of light, detail and texture. Reinforced by the presentation in lightboxes, these landscapes are forced into an artificial setting, mimicking the light illuminated from the galaxy. The tactility of the print medium is also extended by the puncturing of fine holes through the print to emphasize texture.

Take the leap into the queer digital realm with this extraordinary project that gathers together digital artworks by queer identifying artists from across the globe, presented by QueerTech.io and Midsumma Festival in association with Testing Grounds, ACMI and RMIT:ART:INTERSECT.
Themes emerging from the 2018 selection include digitally-born queer utopias, queer re-imaginings of computer game platforms, and interactive works that extend the digital as a queer prosthesis. The project will feature over twenty artists engaged in making neural networks, augmented reality, computer games, interactive websites and video art.
