• danimations’ artists receive Runner-Up prize for SALA’s Gosia Schild Moving Image Award


    After contributing new works to SALA’s Moving Image Project annually since 2006, Dan Monceaux and Emma Sterling this year received the Runner Up prize for the covetted Gosia Schild Award for Best New Work in the Moving Image Project. This year’s new works included ‘Pipe Dream’ (a psychedelic waterslide ride cut to a funky breakbeat), ‘When Sparks Fly’ (a looping abstract solo work by Dan Monceaux), and ‘Bit-Tech’ (a lo-fi black and white pixel animation which is currently playing on the Rundle Lantern, a multi-storey public light sculpture at the prominent Adelaide intersection of Pultney and Rundle Streets). The pair also performed as Supermarket with their new audio-visual show ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ at the launch of the event. Dan and Emma are proud of their latest accolade and also wish to congratulate the award’s winner Kyriaki Maragozidis and encouragement award recipient, Adam Murakami on their achievements. SALA continues to provide a unique festival platform for the celebration of the full spectrum of South Australian artists’ work and holds an invaluable place on our cultural calendar.

  • 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.
