On 21 & 22 September 2012, large scale projections transformed the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre with animation, sound, story, music and image… and smaller scale installations offered interactive experiences around the Mondo and nearby.
This was the exciting community presentation that interwove all of the many artworks together into a live public art presentation, projected onto the architecture of the Joan.
No Boundaries ‘Journey to the Riverscape’ was presented in a relaxed, accessible, safe and gentle setting suitable for all ages. The evening program concluded with a soft and dreamy composition about the Nepean River, with accompanying imagery created by the community of Penrith in a series of inclusive arts projects. The event also featured family friendly innovative interactive projection art from the Light Rhythm Plays project.
The No Boundaries Project offered many ways for the audience to engage with the artwork:
- People listened to TRANSIT on their journey to Penrith and then explored the BUSHTRACK exhibition through Westfield Penrith looking at the exhibition artworks and collecting postcard art from selected sites. (this runs til end of September) See our downloads page for the MP3 and guide map.
- Tactile / auditory Installations in the Mondo – these creative art pieces were attached to the pillars of the colonnade. They were created by local artists and were connected to the main story of the No Boundaries show, designed to be felt, touched and smelled to experience the story (although they are fun to look at as well)
- The show began with a live performance by singer/songwriter Krystel Keller. Speeches by the Mayor and MP David Bradbury introduced the show.
- This was followed by the looping projection, covering the large eastern wall of the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, and smaller mobile interactive projections.
