2012: Adaptation for SymbioticA, University of Western Australia

The Adaptation exhibition featured the projects undertaken by the artists in residence at Lake Clifton, south of Mandurah, WA, from 2008 to 2012.  Lake Clifton as a location and as a metaphor, offers a microcosmic peak into the broader issues of ecology and life itself. Adaptation broadly scoped issues spanning the creation of life, indigenous culture, colonisation, scientific discovery, development booms, to fragility in the face of climate change.

Large screens and the transnational public sphere

  • October 2012: Korea Australia Dance Battle 2013.

Our research team collaborated on a live, large screens hip hop battle linking three large screens in Melbourne, Perth and Seoul. This project was the first time in the world that large screens in three different cities were used to host a real-time public participation event. This live link-up included performances of B-boy, Krumping and Popping battles, special performances, and a free public hip hop workshop. The crowd in Perth was very diverse and engaged with the whole premise of the opportunity.

  • October 2011: HELLO

Large Screens and the Transnational Public Sphere and Art Center Nabi staged the first presentation of HELLO 여보세요, a public participation dance event by Rebecca Hilton and Soonho Park that linked the large screens at Fed Square, Melbourne and Arko Art Theatre in Seoul. During the one and a half hour free public event, over 400 participants of all ages attended. Taking the form of a collaborative, fun and easy to learn dance game, HELLO negotiated linguistic, technological and cultural differences to test the possible creation of a transnational public sphere.
