2021 End of year art party at Collingwood Yards

Our friends at West Space are throwing an end of year party, and everyone’s invited! The Collingwood Arts Precinct is reunited, and together we are celebrating the artistic community.

Join us tomorrow, Tuesday 14 December, 8-11 PM, at Hope Street Radio and Collingwood Yards (Courtyard). No RSVP required. Refreshments will be provided, with a paid bar running at Hope Street once the tab runs out (come down early to catch some free drinks and food!).

Centre for Projection Art is hosting alumni works of Eric JongLina Buck, and Zoe Mars. The mesmerising projection works were created throughout our artist-in-residence program in 2020 – 2021 and exhibited in Gertrude Street Projection Festival 2021.

Lucrecia Quintanilla and Samira Farah will be behind the decks of the General Feelings Soundsystem, with Lulu and Samira bringing together a selection of guest DJs. We will also be joined by Joshua Tavares, who will be performing alongside other special guests.

This end of year celebration is supported by the City of Yarra through its Annual Grants program. All attendees will need to show proof of double vaccination.

Eric Jong’s Through a LiDAR sparsely is an inquiry into the digital computational gaze as it examines real physical space. The work utilises lo-fi systems for photogrammetry, light detection and ranging (LiDAR – Laser scanning or surveying) from site-specific recordings at Collingwood Yards to generate a semi-translucent and layered digital terrain. Through a LiDAR sparsely explores algorithmic driven spatial technology and mediated perception at the limits of access and format.

Through a LiDAR sparsely uses a set of images, image features, and image matches as input and produces a 3D reconstruction of the camera and sparse scene geometry as an output. The system reconstructs the scene and terrain incrementally, a few images at a time, using a feature-based multiple view reconstruction vision algorithm. Through the use of these technologies, the algorithm takes on the role of the auditor and presents a computational view of a complex real physical space. Intriguingly, the end result is visually elusive, semi-abstract and somewhat disorientating.
