Urban Screens Melbourne

Martin John Callanan’s Eleven will be screened at Urban Screens Melbourne, 6-8 October 2008

The event will promote a lateral trans-disciplinary approach to exploring the growing appearance of moving images in urban space and the global transformation of public culture in the context of large new multi media precincts such as Federation Square and various networked forms of urban screens. It will build on the successful events held in Amsterdam in 2005 and Manchester in 2007 and will be the first Urban Screens held in the Asia-Pacific region.

Through an integrated program of keynote lectures, panel sessions, workshops, curated screenings and multimedia projects, it will bring together leading Australian and international artists and curators, architects and urban planners, screen operators and content providers, technology manufacturers, software designers and public intellectuals.

Work and Play, Harewood House

New work by Susan Collins in “Work & Play”
The Terrace Gallery and Grounds, Harewood House

09 August 2008 – 02 November 2008


In June 2008 a new Susan Collins pixel webcam was installed overlooking Harewood’s classical ‘Capability’ Brown landscape. The webcam is programmed to record images of the landscape over the course of a year and a series of digital prints have been produced with each image made up of pixels collected over 21.33 hours. The work plays on parallels between these constructed pixel landscapes and the construct of this composed picturesque idyll.

The exhibition Work & Play explores Harewood House and its estate in the wider landscape. A few prints from this new Harewood series will be on display alongside other images of Harewood including watercolours, architectural plans, historic maps and photographs from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
