Reclaimed Wood Vortex at Lost Paradise Festival 2016

As part of the stage decor for the Paradise Club stage at Lost Paradise Festival, I designed and installed a reclaimed wood vortex installation. Keeping with the aesthetic of the reclaimed wood stage design by Architects of Entertainment and inspired by the Inversion artwork by Dan Havel and Dean Ruck, I designed a reclaimed wood vortex to sit within the bush setting of Paradise Club stage which could be climbed into. Thank you to James Betts as head builder and carpenter Jonothan Gaida. Massive thank you to Architects of Entertainment, Milkcrate Events and Lost Paradise Festival.

Chroma Vortex at Rainbow Serpent Festival 2016

Once again I am lucky to have the support of Rainbow Serpent Festival behind one my works. Very happy with the final form of the vortex and it sat in the amphitheater, beautifully working with the colour palette of the main stage shade sail.

Hand Grove by the Pier Group at Strawberry Fields Festival 2015

I was very lucky to crew with the Reno based Burning Man collaborative installation art collective Pier Group at Strawberry Fields Festival 2015. Known for their iconic installations Embrace and the Pier at Black Rock City, this work was their first away from home and what an absolute pleasure to spend a week camped on the Murray River making art with them.
