Art Installations

Bamboo shade environment Bass Coast 2013

I received an art grant to design, create, and install an art installation.   I chose bamboo, as a renewable resource and  a compostable resource, to construct a shade tunnel environment.  Built over the course of 3 days, measuring roughly 12 meters in length, 8 meters wide, and 3 meters tall at the apex; this structure enabled festival participants a place to escape the sun, and at night with the structure being lit from the inside, it created an encapsulating place to relax.

Art Direction and Decor

Since 2014 I have been Art Director and Decor Artist for the main stage for Bass Coast Festival and Guild Art Collective.

Past year installations have included, but not limited to, decor construction, and installation of decor kit for Mutiny, the pirate ship.

 100% recycled and upcycled materials used.

Tentacles 2015

Following Mutiny was Tentacular! Giant wooden tentacles breaking out from wrapping around the main stage.  My job was to wrap the main framed wooden skeletal structure of each tentacle with a super thin wooden "skin".   Flexible to a point and then very brittle and breaking,   the job proved tricky  for my crew and I but we pulled it off.     One of my favourite installations because of the unique asymmetrical design.

Space

2017 saw the creation of a spaceship.    My job was to build rockets, black matter ray guns, and little unique decor features, as well as, paint the craft.   60+ hours of decor.    Such an awe inspiring installation.  

100% recycled and upcycled materials used.
