This incredibly cool installation arrived in Melbourne city a week ago for Melbourne Music Week, a festival that highlighted and showcased some of our local talent. The Kube, as it is known, has travelled around the globe and finally landed on our shores, after much hype. The kube itself is a light up, portable bar, complete with stage, licensed bars and cafe (by day). The kubes are synchronised to the music and light up in sequence to sound, coordinated by a Video DJ.
My work often takes two avenues of theme: a darker, sometimes scary world of unseen nightmares, and a nostalgic playground of warm memories, much safer and happier than the former.
I have always looked further than traditional methods of photography. Digital manipulation has allowed me to communicate and share my view of the world. I have a need to lace my work with elements of obscure visions and deliver a piece the viewer can connect with on multiple levels.
