The Playground

12/08/2017 - 20/08/2017
10:00 am - 10:00 am

The Playground, by Dr Betty Sargeant and Justin Dwyer with Professor Floyd Mueller, features a co-created sculpture, interactive projection mapping and public participation. It physically engages the public with public spaces and personalises the experience of art and technology.  Small sculptural pieces will be hidden around Ararat’s main street. To find a piece, the public engage in a treasure hunt, following clues on a map (below) or released on social media. When they find a piece they can bring it to the exhibition space and connect it onto a sculptural frame. 

You are invited to experiment with taking close-up photos of brightly coloured textures, lights and material surfaces (not faces or figurative images please!) then upload your photo/s (in landscape format) to The Playground Facebook Page 

These photos will be projected onto The Playground sculpture in a very unexpected way.

Please join us to celebrate our presentation of The Playground with an artist’s talk by Dr Betty Sargeant and Justin Dwyer on Thursday 17 August 2017 at 6pm at 101 Barkly Street, Ararat

The project is supported by Ararat Rural City Council, Creative Victoria, RMIT University, Exertion Games Lab and First National Commercial Ararat.
