1 June – 30 June, 6.00 pm – 7.00 pm daily
Transient Entanglement explores the temporal nature of our existence through exploring the fragility of the natural environment. Created using LIDAR scanning technology in local sites in Victoria this work simulates a world that is void of human life but depicts waste remnants highlighting the over consumptive behaviours that contribute to the move into a new epoch known as the Anthropocene.
Public art originally commission by Nillumbik Shire Council.
Presented on the Bunjil Place Outdoor Screen as part of the Art After Dark 2022 Program.
Yandell Walton is a contemporary artist whose work encompasses projection, installation, and interactive digital media. Through work that melds architectural space with the projected image, Yandell has become recognised for her immersive projection works that merge the actual and the virtual to investigate notions of impermanence in relation to environmental, social and political issues.
Yandell’s work has been widely exhibited nationally and internationally in galleries and non-traditional public spaces including Dark Mofo (2018), Light City Festival Baltimore (2016), Digital Graffiti Florida (2015), Experimenta Speak to Me (Melbourne & Brisbane 2012-14), PUBLIC Festival Perth (2014), Melbourne Festival (2012), VIVID Festival Sydney (2013), ISEA (International Symposium of Electronic Art 2013) and White Night Festival Melbourne (2013/15). She was the recipient of the Australian Network for Art and Technology IDEATE funding and the Philip Hunter Fellowship (2020/21).
Driven by emotional responses to our increasingly damaged planet her recent research investigates ecological shifts in landscape due to human impact. This ongoing research interrogates technological processes to enable volumetric scans to be animated, introducing human-like movement with plant life creating cross species forms.
