Patrick Carter, Bloom, 2017, 4.25 minutes.

An established artist and performer, who has worked with DADAA since 2007, Patrick Carter has demonstrated is adeptness across art forms, including painting, dance, performance and musical compositions. Patrick’s new work for Mixed Reality, is the first of a series of three film works.

As with all his works, Bloom is a personal meditation exploring health, wellbeing and vulnerability. Set in a hospital, a space traditionally associated with healing, Patrick appropriates the sterile and isolated medical room which he sees as devoid of emotional or familial connection, to create an alternative space for his own recovery.

The following two videos for Bloom (currently in development) will see Patrick take control of his own healing, as he continues to seek out alternative environments for his own recovery.

NOTE: BLOOM is still in production with parts 2 and 3 and will be exhibited in 2019 as part of REVEALED, Fremantle Arts Centre.

Liam’s distinctive animations, characters and tongue-in-cheek plots are here translated into stop motion animations for Mixed Reality. Although playful and witty, his complex storyboards and multi-layered characters explore urgent themes related to the influence of popular culture, sexuality and relationships.

I am currently working intensely with five artists from the Mixed Reality project. Patrick Carter, Tina Fielding, Lauren Marchbank, Danny Tuckey and Julia Hales.

Each artist has their own creative agenda and drive and my role as a facilitator is to assist each individual to realise their projects.

With an arts practice based in movement and film I am currently working on developing live dance and theatre performance outcomes with each person. Themes that have emerged throughout the workshopping process have been identity, culture and reality. What is real for you? What is your everyday reality? The work we have been creating is personal and revealing and has proved to be both challenging and rewarding for the artists and I.

Once we have formed the live performance material we will then move into working with technology and virtual reality. We will be looking at how each personal reality then manifests in an unnatural virtual world. This experimentation will then be incorporated with the live performance for some of the artists.
