New projection sound artwork at Noosa Junction station
  • Tuesday 21 February 2012

Sunshine Coast Council presents the third projection sound artwork in the Public Art Program at Noosa Junction station by new media storyteller and soundscape artist P.D. Casely-Hayford.

The public launch of Cultural remix: Sharing the Sacred will take place at Noosa Junction station on Friday 9 March at 6.30pm.

Division 11 Councillor Russell Green said he is pleased to see projection artwork taking centre stage in a public space.

"I encourage people to view the artwork in the evening and to take the time to watch the full projection that lasts for 30 minutes," Cr Green said.

"Projection art is a new and innovative part of council’s public art program and it’s really exciting for people who work in and appreciate the medium to see it featured at Noosa Junction station.

"It’s also a great opportunity for people who haven’t seen projection art to experience something entirely unique."

Cultural remix: Sharing the Sacred is a contemporary new media work that contains elements of animation, still images and film accompanied by an original soundscape projected onto large screens by digital projectors.

P. D. Casely-Hayford said the work has rare and fascinating historic images of Noosa and surrounds.

"I hope people come away with a sense that culture is a dynamic and ever changing experience, I also hope people find the humour in some of the work," said Casely-Hayford.

"It’s exciting to see Sunshine Coast Council embed contemporary aesthetics such as new media into public spaces."

P.D. Casely-Hayford works across all platforms of creativity, including new media artworks, soundscapes, performing arts, production of hybrid film and theatre documentaries, and poetry films.

Cultural remix: Sharing the Sacred will be launched at Noosa Junction station on Friday 9 March at 6.30pm. RSVP by Tuesday 6 March, phone 07 5449 5340 or email gallery.noosa@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
