Young people in Wagga Wagga have been learning about the art and science of light and image making with a project called dLab. Over the past few months, dLab workshop facilitator Yenny Huber has been delivering workshops that combine digital media with chemistry, physics and DIY technologies to Mt Austin High School students and young people from Centacare.
Next week as part of National Science Week, the creative gusto of workshop participants will be showcased in large-scale projections onto the walls of Wagga Wagga City Council Chambers using brand new, state-of-the-art projection equipment.
The dLab workshop participants will be the first to use and present their work on the walls of Wagga Wagga Council Chanbers. Australian multimedia artist Cindi Drennan, who specialises in audiovisual media and projection art, has been working with dLab to teach project participants about the physics of light refraction and reflection.
They’ll each master techniques for preparing large-scale, outdoor projection content and learn about the mechanics and interaction of producing live and pre-recorded sound. Each participant will have the opportunity to create their own presentation that will be showcased next week at Council Chambers.
When: After dark, Tuesday 13 August to Friday 16 August
