Projection project

28 Aug 2012

Projection project Image

Docklands is now lit up each night by a large-scale digital projection.

From dusk each evening the permanent video installation Structure of Vortices can be viewed from the exterior of the Melbourne Water Building at 990 LaTrobe St.

The projection runs on a 55-minute cycle and shows a water vortex that is injected with various colours and gold flecks showing a whirlpool of changing colour and speed.

The artwork, by Cameron Robbins, was commissioned by Digital Harbour (Holdings) in June 2011.

“The artwork is fitting because of the location of the building in Docklands, beside the harbour, and the major tenant of the building, Melbourne Water,” Digital Harbour executive director Davis Napier said.

The artwork was selected through a competition held by Digital Harbour. Six artists were invited to provide a proposal for an artwork with part of the brief being to reflect the main tenant, Melbourne Water.

It was installed in May this year and has been operating since June. The artwork was officially launched on August 28.
