• Naturescope videos on show in Gallery M, Marion Cultural Centre


    Works from the danimations online video series Naturescope are on show at Gallery M in Marion Cultural Centre until April 1st. The three episodes are presented as part of a community art exhibition entitled ‘The Demise or Otherwise of South Australia’s Gulfs’. Conceived and wrangled by passionate environmentalists from the Save Our Gulfs Coalition, over 90 artists from around Spencer and St Vincent’s Gulfs responded to the theme in a very diverse range of media and working styles. We were thrilled to be asked to contribute our work, and also produced for the occasion a limited edition DVD featuring the three videos. It is available from the gallery for $15. For more information about the exhibition, visit Gallery M’s website. To see the Naturescope videos without leaving your computer or cellphone, view them on Youtube.

  • Emma Sterling’s fine art photography on show at Christina’s on High Street, Willunga


    Danimations’ producer and editor Emma Sterling began her creative journey as an artist and still photographer, and continues practising to this day. Her current show ‘Bloom’ presents a series of floral abstract images which double as vivid yet gentle colour studies. The works triumphantly re-imagine nature through a macro lens, a technique Emma has been practising since 2005. Her work is hanging on the walls of Christina’s on High Street in the charming South Australian town of Willunga (just an hour’s drive south of Adelaide) until September 8th, 2010.

    Sponsored by leading Adelaide photo lab Atkins Technicolour, the works are available as stunning limited edition archival prints, and for this showing have been mounted on aluminium. All works are available to purchase in signed editions of 10 for AUD$300 each. You can take a virtual look at the exhibition in the video above, and if you enjoy Emma’s work, you can also purchase them on gift cards and view additional works at her artist store on Redbubble.com.

  • danimations video art: award-nominated and on display at SALA


    Dan Monceaux and Emma Sterling’s latest artistic video works are on display for free public viewing until August 23rd as part of the 2010 South Australian Living Artists’ festival. The duo presented their latest Supermarket audio-visual performance ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ at the Queen’s Theatre on July 31, and were also nominated as a finalist for the Adelaide Film Festival partnership award for moving image art. Their first new piece, a high-definition meditation on light and motion entitled ‘When Sparks Fly’ is currently screening in the Bang & Olufsen showroom on Grenfell St, while the psychadelic waterslide ride ‘Pipe Dream’ plays on another Bang & Olufsen television in the Queen’s Theatre.

    Nightly, an animated monochromatic pixel art pattern-study entitled ‘Bit-Tech’ plays as part of a loop of fresh works on the Rundle Lantern, Adelaide’s impressive multi-storey light sculpture located at the intersection of Rundle and Pultney Streets. Danimations extends its warm gratitude to SALA for their ongoing support of South Australian practising artists and to the Moving Image Project’s major sponsor Bang & Olufsen for their provision of state-of-the-art display and sound equipment, taking the audience’s experience to a higher level than ever.
