Art & About Sydney 2012: Emergence

By Craig Walsh

Produced by the City of Sydney

Every landscape hides countless untold stories…

As night descends, the giant trees in Hyde Park South are illuminated. Faces emerge from the leaves and branches, revealing lives – past and present – linked to this beautiful green space in the centre of our city. The effect is haunting. As the branches sway, these ephemeral 3D monuments shift and change, responding to the park and its history.

Emergence is presented in collaboration with the Australian Museum.

Artist-director Craig Walsh is a contemporary artist who works across art forms including theatre, architecture, public works and festivals. His work has been shown at major national and international exhibitions, and he has just completed a two-year touring residency project titled Digital Odyssey.

Steven Thomasson is a visual designer who works in film production, visual effects and 3D animation.
