I’ve been working with Moth Design on a commission for the Dark Mofo festival in Hobart, Tasmania. Moth built the amazing dome space with reflective tables bespoke viewing platforms.

The work ran from 10pm – 4am throughout the festival with a live audiovisual set from myself and Fascinator at midnight on the final Saturday.

Whilst developing the work the entire ride experience was captured using ultra low light cameras for a full 360 immersive experience. The result is a 2 minute ride experience into the artwork and this hybrid multimedia […]
