MIXED REALITY :THE CAVE

teaser.jpg

The CAVE is a multi-person, room-sized, high-resolution, 3D video and audio environment. Graphics are rear projected in stereo onto three walls and the floor, and viewed with stereo glasses.As a viewer wearing a location sensor moves within its display boundaries, the correct perspective and stereo projections of the environment are updated, and the image moves with and surrounds the viewer. The other viewers in the CAVE are like passengers in a bus, along for the ride!¬†“CAVE,” the name selected for the virtual reality theater, is both a recursive acronym (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment) and a reference to “The Simile of the Cave” found in Platos “Republic,” in which the philosopher explores the ideas of perception, reality, and illusion. Plato used the analogy of a person facing the back of a cave alive with shadows that are his/her only basis for ideas of what real objects are. ¬†

DAVID BOWIE EXHIBITION

David Bowie Is

I was absolutely blown away by Bowie’s exhibition and i was very surprised at the array of work ! I had no idea Bowie was a painter among so many other things. The way it curated was amazing!

I instantly was drawn to his costume design and couldn’t believe how many costumes he had produced. Walking into the exhibition was like a key to Bowie’s imagination it was so memorable.

The NGV is now showing a very exuberant exhibition on children’s book illustrators such Allison Lester, Shaun Tan,Leigh Hobbs , Frank Moffatt and other exciting illustrators.

I was particularly inspired by and interested to see Shaun Tan’s ‘They made their own houses’ Which is his most glorified work because of his depiction of the white invasion on the indigenous Australian’s.

Other illustrations there sparked many memories of books that had been turned into television series such as Leigh Hobb’s ‘Old Tom.’

Tim Johnson- Tolarno Gallery

UFOs-per-se-461x242

Observing Tim Johnson’s exhibition ‘OPEN SPACES’ i found myself immersing into various worlds in which Johnson had captured on each canvas with contrasting spiritual iconography of¬†Aboriginal Australia, the Buddhist East and Native American’s.

His paintings are landscapes of desire, images of impossible unity, imagined syntheses of cultural and visual systems that freely draw upon images whose meaning we do not necessarily recognise or understand.”
