The Uncanny

Spectacle Sculpture, Big Day Out, nationwide tour 2010

The Installation is suggestive of an archaeological discovery. A monumental skeleton emerging from the ground and coming to life again. Two towering spines made of reflective vertebrae form glimmering DNA strands as they spin on the giant pelvic bone. An egg shaped cavity inside the pelvis holds an infinite laser matrix. At night powerful beams of light shoot straight up the spines and endlessly into space as if sending out a message.

Chung Ling Soo’s Double Dragon Spirit Show

Spectacle Theatre Show, Splendour in the Grass 2006

This massive sideshow installation pushed Festival Art into the theatre of spectacle and grand illusion. The show is based on the famous Victorian era magician Chung Ling Soo and his traveling magic show. The stage is shaped like a giant cauldron, amidst the smoke, two red dragons majestically rise up to clasp a spinning crystal. This ghostly realm is inhabited by a surrealist performance troupe of beautifully costumed Peking Opera style dancers and circus acrobats that float, disappear and reappear under the phantasmagoric powers of Chung Ling Soo.

The Hand of Glass

Canberra Festival Australia, Hong Kong Arts Festival China, Glastonbury Festival England, 1997 – 2000

The ghostly transparent hand seemed to come alive with haunting super natural powers, radiating light from the palm as if trying to communicate. The idea of a hand with two thumbs was intended to symbolises future human evolution. The installation was originally commissioned by the Canberra Festival as a public artwork for the civic square fountain. It was then mounted at the Hong Kong Arts Festival as part of  the “Hand Over” celebrations, and the next year at the Glastonbury Music Festival and the Circus 2000 Festival in England.

The Regenerating Phoenix

Canberra Festival 1998

This Spectacle Installation was inspired by the ancient myth of an immortal bird that builds a nest of fire once every thousand years and is reborn from its own ashes. As a New Years Eve Spectacle.  the regenerating Phoenix is symbolic of the old year passing and the new year beginning. The design creates the mesmerising illusion of a shimmering Phoenix appearing and disappearing within the giant golden fire nest. The installation featured a customised laser animation which generated suspense towards the climatic midnight pyrotechnic finale.
